Snow Park NZ was the latest resort to open, last Saturday 4 July, with good fresh snow coverage across the terrain park and new features introduced. Night skiing and riding sessions kicked off twice weekly, on Tuesday (7 July).
Mt Hutt reported receiving 50cm (20 inches) of new snow at the start of the week and 74cm (2.5 feet) in the last week and is now boasting a good base of 150cm (five feet) with more snow forecast for the next couple of days.

"Everyone was beaming ear-to-ear today as they skied knee-deep powder," said Dave Wilson, Ski Area Manager. "Awesome snow falling with little winds has created near-on perfect conditions at Mt Hutt for the school holidays."
