Continuous Snowfalls Blanket Mt Hutt and Queenstown Ski Areas In NZ (10-May-09)

New Zealand Ski Resorts, New Zealand, May 10, 2009 - Continuous snowfalls on New Zealand's premier mountain resorts of Mt Hutt

Continuous snowfalls on New Zealand’s premier mountain resorts of Mt Hutt in Canterbury and Coronet Peak and the Remarkables in Queenstown, has blanketed the mountains in snow with forecasts predicting a lot more on the way.

The crew at Mt Hutt has been unable to get up the mountain after 80cm of snow has fallen to 800m, burying the top half of the access road, with staff reported to be working around the clock to clear roads before the next set of snow storms arrive.

Further south in Queenstown, The Remarkables received 15cm of snow to deliver good snow cover across the entire ski area, and down to the 11km mark on the access road.

Snowfall at Coronet Peak has resulted in 10cm of snow at the top of the mountain and 5cm at the ski area base, and forecasts predict snowfalls lowering to the 800m mark within days.

Coronet Peak and The Remarkables are scheduled to open on Saturday 6 June and Saturday 20 June respectively. Mt Hutt is scheduled to open on Saturday 13 June.
