Who would have thought? A Pow day around the country today!! Between 7 & 23cms of new snow has fallen on the mountains overnight and there is more on the way with another snow making system due from Friday. A low will move east over the South Island drawing up some unsettled bandits from the pole. With another high moving into the Tasman from Aussie from Sunday this will be pushing the isobars together. Expect snow, then wind before the next settled period. The avalanche advisory is already moderate to considerable, expect this to rise later in the week.

There are still a number of major events in the calendar before the end of the season including the World Heli Challenge, Burton High Fives, Dobson Dash, Peak to the Powderkeg and Peak to Pub. Key dates: Sat 20th - Election Day; Sat 27th - Spring School Holiday begin; Sun 28th - Daylight Saving begins; Sun 5th October - traditional closing date for most ski areas. EVENT ORGANISERS: If we don't know about your event we can't promote it. Use CONTACT US  (at the bottom right of this page) to let us know.

The forecast now is for mostly settled weather for the foreseeable future with a lick from a low in the North Island and the top of the South on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. This will consolidate the new snow that we have had so the season is back on track. Hopefully we will get some more top-ups during the last week of August leading into September.
