Even More Awesome Snow At Mt Hutt (11-Aug-08)

Mt Hutt, NZ, August 11, 2008 - A further 14 centimeters of new snow at Mt Hutt

A further 14 centimeters of new snow at Mt Hutt on top of an already outstanding base had skiers and riders eating powder as they enjoyed ungroomed, untracked ski territory at the high country ski area.

Assistant ski area manager James McKenzie says those guests who waited for the road to open were treated to world class powder conditions.

“"Our ski patrol and road crew have worked through the night and all morning to ensure guests had a chance to sample the latest offering from the snow gods".

"Locals are saying our 257cm base is the best they can remember in over two decades and the regular top-ups we seem to be getting each week are keeping the mountain in pristine condition".
