New Zealand pounded with snow

Get excited people it is game on across the ditch as New Zealand’s South Island is bang smack in the middle of another blizzard.

Coronet Peak is reporting 40cms of fresh thus far, Treble Cone is calling the same at the top of Home Basin and Mt Hutt is too (Thursday). There’s up to 1 metre predicted earlier and it’s still snowing so we may yet see the goods – fingers and toes crossed.

UPDATE Thursday night: Mt Hutt reporting 90cms already at 7.30pm Sydney time.

Friday morning update: Over a metre of snow has fallen at Mt Hutt and surrounding ski areas and 65cms plus at Treble Cone and Cardrona near Wanaka

This is what Treble Cone woke up to this morning. Friday.

And this is what Treble Cone looked like once the sky broke blue.
