Snow enthusiasts dug out their snow gear and hiked up to the top of Canterbury in New Zealand's Mt Hutt over the weekend to enjoy 'first tracks' of the season.

Snowfall on Thursday and Friday last week and continued cold temperatures has resulted in a 45cm (18 inch) base at the high country ski resort.

James McKenzie, Assistant Ski Area Manager for Mt Hutt, said there were a number of keen skiers making the most of the early snow over the weekend.

"We've got some awesome powder at the moment so it's great to see locals hitting the slopes and having some fun so early in the season," he said.

The ski area is officially scheduled to open and start running its lifts in just over five weeks on 13 June.
