Mt Ruapehu in New Zealand has reported first snow on the slopes, three months before its ski areas are due to open.
“Yesterday’s southerly front painted an icing sugar like coating on Ruapehu’s upper slopes. A sure sign that winter is not far away,” said Mike Smith, Marketing Manager of Ruapehu Alpine Lifts.
Turoa is scheduled to open on June 19th and work is progressing well at Whakapapa rebuilding the Knoll Ridge Chalet and Cat Shed. Whakapapa is scheduled to open June 26th.
