Finally a decent dump of snow hits Queenstown ski fields


A deluge of snow on Queenstown’s mountains over the weekend has been welcomed by Queenstown’s ski fields boss and punters.

Since the weekend, the weather has been pristine and NZSki boss James Coddington expects the stellar conditions to continue this week.

“This is an impressive dump of snow and more is predicted later in the week for The Remarkables. Right now there is fantastic skiing and riding across both mountains,” he says.

Thousands rushed up Coronet Peak on Sunday to make the most of the 45cm of new snow. The Remarkables range was blanketed with 33cm of fresh powder.
