Around 4500 people made the most of the best snow day of the season so far, with 40cm of powder falling on The Remarkables and more than 25cm on Coronet Peak in the past 24 hours.

“There were lots of ‘yahoos’, lots of excited people, smiles and high fives out there today with fresh snow just adding to the good times,” said The Remarkables ski area manager Ross Lawrence.
