As I lie here with a broken leg, my thoughts go out to Jossi who yesterday broke his neck. It's all relative. All the best for the rehab Jossi, Kia Kaha mate.

All eyes on the forecast with snow forecast right through to Sunday accompanied by stronger winds in the north. Some ski fields have re-opened with up to half a metre fallen in the last couple of days, check the reports. It may be a hat and goggle sort of Saturday but the snow will be GREAT!!  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, mostly in the north 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 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.
