There are few ski areas open in the southern hemisphere now with all ski areas closed in Africa, Australia and South America.
However three centres are open still in New Zealand. Mt Hutt still has a 155cm (five feet) base and received another 10cm (four inches) of snow on Sunday 10th. On Mt Ruapehu both ski areas were closed today by strong winds and fresh snow bringing blizzard conditions, but Whakapapa has a 176cm (six foot) base and Turoa a little more. It will be the last area in the southern hemisphere open through to November.
