The American Express Queenstown Winter Festival continues until Sunday with our favourites the AMEX night skiing at Coronet tomorrow and the Mountain Mayhem on Saturday. It's also Ohakune Mardi-Gras weekend (follow the link to see 2013 highlights) with this years lineup including; Weird Together, Whistle Jacket, Peking Duck, Mt Eden & General Lee. Remember, There is no such thing as bad weather... Just inappropriate clothing!

There are a lot of ski areas that were due to open by now, or this weekend that are still on hold. Many have not updated their opening dates; 'until mother nature allows', 'pending more snow' & 'when conditions improve' is being bantered around. Keep an eye on updates on New Zealand's oldest online snow report. Mt Hutt, Cardrona and Coronet Peak have opened their slopes, with Coronet Peak welcoming back its night ski events this Friday. There is snow in the forecast for higher altitudes on Friday and again from Sunday. (See more below) All areas will have their fingers crossed for snow to arrive in time for the Australian & New Zealand school holidays which start on the 5th of July.

We're (still) looking forward to a fantastic season! Get into it!
