The team at Turoa on Mt Ruapehu spent much of Monday morning blowing snow down on the meadow with the snow making crews both there and at the mountain's other ski area, Whakapapa, primed and ready to get more snow on the ground whenever conditions will allow it.
There has been snow throughout the day and more in the forecast so mother nature is doing her bit to help out too.
Things are currently on track for the projected opening dates of the 19th of June for Turoa and Whakapapa following one week later on the 26th of June.
