Wanaka Queenstown Snow Update - 28 August 2015

The last few weeks have been a cycle of snow and mostly sunshine here at the Wanaka and Queenstown ski resorts - of course there was the odd day of cloud, but we all need to rest the legs at some point! The frequent overnight snow falls of 5-10cm, and the cold temperatures have kept the snow in immaculate condition. Awesome!

Spring is just around the corner, but it's looking like we're going to be lucky enough to experience mid winter conditions for a few more weeks yet! Yay! This also means we are in for a 'cracker' of a last few weeks of September, when or if things really do warm up. Spring is my favourite time to ride here in New Zealand, longer days, warmer temps, and this year it's going to be great snow too!

Right, lets have a wee peak (pun) at the snow levels for the resorts this week.  Also enjoy some photos below from the tour I was lucky enough to guide earlier a couple weeks back (8-15 Aug).
