A quick roundup of new lifts, snow making and other important changes at ski areas around New Zealand
2017 has seen some huge investment in the snow scene. Mt Ruapehu continues to invest, heavily, which while is great news for the North Island snow lovers. Down south, Cardrona has made a major commitment, with a new “Chondola”, New Zealands first, featuring 8-person gondola cabins & 6-seater chairs.
Also consistently around the country is the expansion or upgrade of snow making systems, at pretty much all areas. This of course is great news, helping fill in the gaps mother nature occasionally leaves. It’s fantastic to see this investment and it signals confidence in New Zealand remaining a strong winter destination.
Following is just a brief recap of what has changed, there are of course so many things happening on the areas over the summer they can’t all be listed, but we thought these were some highlights.
Enjoy winter 2017!
