Canterbury local Charlie Lyons and friends made the most of the recent cold snap to be at Mt Hutt for its opening day today. Lyons said it was one of his best opening days at Mt Hutt for some time.

"Conditions were epic, clear and calm with great coverage across the hill for this time of year with lots of pockets of fresh snow to use, it was one of the best opening days I've had since I started skiing here 14 years ago".

Lyons reported that the snow ranged from 60-90cm in places and that skiing on trail was fantastic and that the Mt Hutt staff had even had time to set up a small terrain Park. He plans to use the good early season snow to springboard is preparation for the 2012-13 Free Ride World Tour which he recently qualified for where he will compete alongside fellow kiwis Sam Smoothy and Twins Janina and Maria Kuzma.
