Winter is here- FINALLY!

Winter is here!

The El Nino weather pattern gave us a great warm, long summer, and it was always said we would be in for a delayed start to winter, and wasn’t that the truth.

In mid may the South Island had a big snow fall and all was looking good for the season ahead.

Queenstown ski fields opened to schedule and we were stoked to have so many bluebird days, unfortunately a couple of warm weeks later the snow was melting away fast. No storms came through which meant Coronet Peak had to close for a week during winter festival and Treble Cone had to delay their opening day, things we not looking great…..

Eventually we got a couple of weeks where the temperatures dropped allowing some great snow making to be done and the re-opening of Coronet Peak, but still no natural snow.

If the long term predication is correct it’s looking like we could be in for a long, late winter so get prepared for some great skiing all season long!
