Coronet Peak in NZ Opening with Limited Snow

Posted By: The Ski Channel on June 29, 2011 9:37 am

Coronet Peak Ski Area in New Zealand will be open June 30 but only open with limited man-made trail snow only. Coronet Peak, like many resorts in New Zealand and Chile, have pushed their season openings this year due to lack of snow. The popular New Zealand ski area was originally supposed to open on June 4 for the season.

Finally opening, whether it be with a thin layer and limited man-made trails is a “hugh relief,” for Hamish McCrostie, Coronet Peak’s Manager.

Current conditions have been reported as of 4PM New Zealand time today, June 29, with their Lower mountain snow depth being 10cm and their Upper mountain snow depth clocking in at only 20cm. The last snowfall was 1 inch on June 11.

Mother Nature, we have asked you before, but please send our friends some snow!
