The Audi Quattro Winter Games continues this week LIVE ON SNOWTV with the IPC Slalom World Cup continuing today at Coronet Peak, action in the pipe at Cardrona with the Snowboard Halfpipe World Cup on Saturday and the Freeski Slopestyle World Cup on Sunday, also at Cardrona.

The BIG event is the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere with more than 750 elite athletes from a record number of competing nations here to compete in this pre-Olympic event. Many athletes are here to qualify for the Sochi Winter Olympics which starts on March 7th in Russia.

In our controversial Internet Poll this week we ask; If a large event is on do you; A.) Avoid to ski area and go somewhere quieter; B.) Plan your trip as usual, it doesn't matter; C.) Get up there to see the athletes in their lycra strut their stuff. VOTE NOW. (So far 75% are avoiding the resort in favour of watching it live on snowtv.co.nz no doubt.)

For the weekend we have a low pressure system developing in the Tasman off the south coast will move north. An associated cold front will move onto the west coast of both islands late on Saturday. In the south the unsettled weather will be confined mainly to the west of the divide. In the North Island however Ruapehu and Taranaki are in for some showers on Saturday and rain on Sunday with freezing levels above 2000m. The place to be; The South Island on Sunday.
