Consistent snowfall yesterday (5 Sept) followed by a stunning blue sky day has seen locals and visitors flock to the slopes around Queenstown today to enjoy superb spring skiing conditions.
Yesterday The Remarkables and Coronet Peak ski areas were blanketed with 15cm of new snow, and Cardrona Alpine Resort topped up with an extra 20cm in the last 48 hours.
Destination Queenstown CEO Graham Budd says spring is a great time of year for visitors to enjoy the best of both worlds in Queenstown.
“There are bluebird days and pristine spring skiing on the mountains while in town everywhere is blossoming with fresh, bright colours.
“Now’s a great time to get to Queenstown for a spring break and make the most of the superb snow conditions and warmer weather. Just do it!” he said.
