The snow gods and mother nature have been good to us so far this year, kicking off the 2010 winter season in New Zealand with a huge dump of snow right down to town level in both Wanaka and Queenstown.
We woke up this morning to see huge snowflakes fluttering down all around, leaving town and the surrounding mountains under a perfect blanket of white. Just what we like to see! The storm has blown through, the clouds have lifted and it’s a sparkly winter wonderland out there… not to mention an epic powder day for those hitting the resorts!
Here’s a few photos of what was revealed once the clouds parted in Queenstown.
Deer Park Heights and Kelvin Heights covered in snow right down to lake level.

The stunning Remarkables, loaded with POWDER!!!
Our helis looking perfectly happy sitting in the snow at Queenstown Airport!
Heli skiing anyone?!
We had our first heli ski day of the season last week and the guides reported exceptionally deep snow bases and excellent coverage, with more snow than usual for this time of year. There’s a good 1m+ in the backcountry – which will now be much deeper since this morning’s storm – and everything is covered up. Our heli ski season opens on 1st July and we can’t wait to get into action! Powder, here we come!
