The South Island ‘weather bomb’ has hit Mt Hutt and it’s delivering the goods – the ski area base building and lift stations are blanketed in snow.

It started snowing on the ski area at around midday today (Thursday June 18) with ‘fat’ flakes around the size of a 50c piece. Around 40cm of super-dry snow has fallen in less than two-and-a-half hours with more still to come.

The mountain’s Metservice weather station is predicting higher snow falls throughout the day through to the early hours of Friday morning, then light snow continuing to 7am.

“We’re expecting patches of snow flurries throughout Friday but it’s looking like a ‘pow’ day at this stage,” said Operations Manager James Urquhart.

The mountain is closed today due to high winds but hopes to open tomorrow.
