Skia ora *|FNAME|*,

It's been an epic week with some snow falling in all ski areas. Those with snowmaking have also been pumping it out around the clock with cold temperature persisting. Snowbases are creeping up; In the North Island, Whakapapa is up to 80cms, Turoa has 145 & Manganui now has 65cms! Down south Treble Cone has 80, Remarkables 75, while Coronet, Cardrona, Ohau, Mt Hutt & Lyford all have around half a metre. There is enough out there now to have fun on, and the on-piste man-made snow is pretty consistent at the areas that have it.. All ski areas are now open with the exception of the central Canterbury club fields. Read the forecast below and keep an eye on the New Zealand Snow Forecasts to see if any more snow is on the way.

There are tonnes of events on this weekend:
Friday: Christmas in the Snow at Coronet
Saturday: Freeride Heli Day with Alpine Heliski, Ski Orienteering at Snowfarm and The TRIC slopestyle series at The Remarkables
Sunday: Junior Interfields Series at Treble Cone
Feature Events: The Peak to Peak Race - Individuals and teams of two to five people race by ski/ snowboard, mountain bike, kayak, foot and road bike from the top of the Remarkables Ski Area to Coronet Peak.  The course encompasses snow covered mountains, steep graveled and tarmac ski field access roads, State Highways and tarmac rural roads, public reserve, public walking / cycling tracks, and Lake Wakatipu. 
If you are over 30 make sure that you note on your calendar for next week the Land Rover Mt Hutt Masters kicks of from Tuesday culminating with a SuperG and Slalom next Friday and the big event, the Giant Slalom on Saturday 2nd August.

It's going to be a fine weekend, get out there and enjoy it!!
