Snowfalls a-plenty for Gay Ski Week

Sun 4 Jul 2004 In: New Zealand Daily News

Snowfall is looking good for this year's Gay Ski Week in Queenstown, with the Coronet Peak ski area reporting one of their best early season snowfalls in years. By the end of last month, Coronet Peak had received over 70cm of new snow and the Remarkables more than a metre, with more snowfalls unexpected by forecasters provided a good base of wet, dense snow at both ski areas. "The snowfalls have been superb and could not have come at a better time," said Coronet Peak manager Duncan Smith. "There are plenty of opportunities for keen skiers and boarders, with the Remarkables and Cardrona opening any day."
