Cold cold conditions moving up the country last night and today, it sounds like the Port Hills copped it last night. What better way to stay warm than pile on the ski and board gear and head for the hills. After a slow start almost all ski areas are open or opening soon with a building natural and, if they have it a huge amount of man-made snow.  Snowmaking temperatures have been perfect and a record amount of snow has been made around the country over the last 10 days. These temperatures should continue for much of the week with an anticylcone moving in bringing cold still conditions. It is a great week to go riding ; from today as far north as mid-Canterbury and, from tomorrow north of  North Canterbury.  There are still a few areas without snowmaking that have not quite opened yet. See which ones on  NZ's oldest Snow Report
