Snow in Southern Hemispshere as Ski Area Aims to Open for First Day of Summer

J2SkiNews posted 29-Nov



It's the last few days of spring in the southern hemisphere, by the meteorological measurement of the seasons at least, but there has been fresh snow reported on the ski slopes of Australia and in Chile, about two months after the 2019 ski season ended there. Mt Hotham is pictured below.



However the 2019 season has not ended at one area, Mt Ruapehu in New Zealand (pictured top last weekend).

Here the Whakapapa ski area has been re-opening for four hours a day (10am-2pm) on Saturday and Sunday when the weather is good (which it has been most weekends) with one T Bar lift serving the slopes.

Temperatures have been in double digits above freezing but a lot of the 1.6 metre base depth at the end of October has survived the month and the plan is to open for a final weekend of the season.

The last day will be Sunday, December 1st, the first day of summer in New Zealand.

Mt Hotham worth a visit.

But our ski season is really June to end of September
