Approaching the storm

Snow Journal | Vaughan Brookfied

New Zealand’s incredible snow-run continues and while we can’t but hope that Christchurch has a reprieve from Mother Nature’s extremes soon it’s wonderful to see the resorts able to flick on every switch and open every door and welcome every rider with slopes covered in super-dry fresh pow.

The sheep are not so impressed apparently.

Matt White’s Weekly NZ Snow Blog has a handy list of all the resorts’ base measurements and the conditions on the North and South Islands.

Nick Brown smacks a turn off the side of the M1 at Coronet Peak. One of the most popular runs in NZ and there is pow.

The wind has been picking up a lot and there are some deep pockets of pow to be found
