Light snow again yesterday added to the already great cover of snow at the Queenstown/Wanaka snowfields. We have just had one of the best June snow covers in years and things look like jumping to another level over the next week.

This week looks like being yet another good week for snow with light snow showers on and off all week with the best coming on Thursday through to Monday with another 30-60cm possible.

Looking long range more snow is likely around the 14th-15th of July.

The outlook for the NZ South Island resorts looks positive with the El Nino pattern setting in. A lot more strong low pressure systems should slide under the Australian mainland and then shoot up towards New Zealand bringing consistent and larger snowfalls.
