Travellers with snow trips to New Zealand in the works are in luck. The latest southerly storm has given Queenstown’s Coronet Peak and The Remarkables the best possible start to winter with up to half a metre of snow blanketing both ski areas.
NZSki CEO Paul Anderson said the snow was perfectly timed for Queenstown’s winter preparations.
“This sets us up for a great start to the 2015 season,” he said. “We’ve got our groomers out working to pack down the snow on piste and we can continue to make more snow on top of this fantastic natural base. This early-season fall will give visitors confidence to book their ski holiday for the coming season.”
The snowfall will help ensure ideal conditions for guests on scheduled opening days, less than three weeks away on 13 June for Coronet Peak and 20 June for The Remarkables.
The cold snap is expected to deliver further snow flurries to Queenstown and the forecast is for continued cold temperatures through until at least Wednesday, providing perfect conditions for snowmaking at Coronet Peak.
