The 2023 ski season has gotten underway in Australia, Chile and New Zealand.
It's believed Mt Hutt in New Zealand, pictured above this morning, was the first to open due to the country's geographical location, even though it opened 24 hours later than originally hoped.
Perisher, Mt Buller (below) and Mt Baw Baw in Australia also opened and Chile's La Parva
is also reported to be open.
It means ski lifts are currently turning on six continents, with ski runs also operational in Europe, North America and at one centre in Japan.
After mild weather at the start of June in Australia and New Zealand terrain open so far is limited. However colder weather has arrived and there's more snowfall expected as dozens more resorts open over the coming week.
