...the snowmakers at Ohau had been producing snow over the weekend.
Ohau Snow Field manager Mike Neilson said snow-making machines had covered the learners' slope with a layer of snow on Saturday night.
"Once June hits we will be making snow.
"I think we're all in order for that." He said the field would probably open on June 25.
Fox Peak vice-president Tim O'Connor said there was no date set for an opening, only that the field would open when it received snow.
Mt Hutt spokeswoman Fiona Woodham said their snow-making team had been in action last weekend.
"We have been experiencing variable weather conditions and while warmer temperatures since then have meant that snowguns have not been operating, the snow-making system and our snowmakers are ready to swing into action, day or night, when conditions permit.
"At this stage, with 11 days to go until our scheduled opening, we are still on track."
