Are you skiing or boarding this week?  The weather and snow conditions are at their peak right now with the changing of the season just around the corner. If you're a believer that spring is Sept, Oct & Nov and the first day of Spring is Sept 1st than that is less that a week away. So who's planned their Spring skiing trip this year?  The forecast is looking superb until Sunday in the North Island at this stage. (It looks like the weather system coming out of the North Tasman is a copy of the last one giving a glancing blow to the North Island and then sliding off east.)  Don't forget your sunscreen . Get out there an have a blast!

The North Face Parks & Pipe events are this week at Cardi, well worth a look if you are up that way!! 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.
