Rydges Lakeland Resort Queenstown
The 2014 ski season is shaping up to be a cracker with snow falling on all the ski areas of New Zealand’s South Island and there’s more than a week to go until the first of the slopes officially open on June 7.
Around 40cm of snow has already covered Queenstown's Coronet Peak and the area’s 215 snow guns have also been hard at work preparing for the start of the season.
“It’s impeccable timing from Mother Nature, right on cue,” Coronet Peak ski area manager Ross Copland said.
Heavy snowfall of around 50cm has also blanketed The Remarkables, and the official opening for the ski fields there isn’t until June 21. Lots of the ski areas in the region have been seeing regular snow dumpings since March.
If you are planning a break in the snow this year, Rydges Lakeland Resort is perfectly located right on Lake Wakitipu looking across the lake to The Remarkables with four ski fields in the surrounding area, all within an hour’s drive. We are getting quite excited – everybody sing: Let it snow, let snow, let it snow!
