Snow Enthusiasts Enjoy 'First Tracks' Of The Season. (04-May-09)

Mt Hutt, New Zealand, May 4, 2009 - Snow enthusiasts dug out their snow gear

Snow enthusiasts dug out their snow gear and hiked up to the top of Canterbury’s Mt Hutt over the weekend to enjoy ‘first tracks’ of the season.

Snowfall on Thursday and Friday last week and continued cold temperatures has resulted in a 45cm base at the high country ski resort.

James McKenzie, Assistant Ski Area Manager for Mt Hutt, said there were a number of keen skiers making the most of the early snow over the weekend.

“We’ve got some awesome powder at the moment so it’s great to see locals hitting the slopes and having some fun so early in the season,” he said.

Mt Hutt is scheduled to open on 13 June.
