Kiwi Snow Reports, New Zealand

Oh my goodness. Those super special season passes are firing out
in a dizzying array of tempting morsels.

Some of these early season deals have limited numbers and they
are closing real soon so now is the hour. Polish up your credit
card, get online and get ready for the season of the sentury.

There are seven New Zealand snow areas offering reciprocal day
lift pass benefits.

Buy a season pass at Turoa, Whakapapa, Mt Dobson, Porters
Heights, Mt Lyford, Cardrona or Treble Cone and when you visit
any other of these fields Adults save $20, Students save $15 and
Children save $10 on a day lift pass. Exceptions are Mt Dobson
where children save $7 and Mt Lyford where the child's saving is
only available on Teen passes.

Now I am not sure what is going on in oz but i think our comrades
across the pacific might be turning a little green with envy.
Then again it always has been cheaper for many Australians to
cross the ditch for their snow experience.

So stop thinking about it and put your money where your mind is.

>== Treble Cone on top of it all

> current offer closes 12 April

Well if you were earlier than this worm you could have got in to the real early season pass scene at TC.

Fraid to say $499 is looking a tad expensive against the other offers on the table but then again they do record 5.5 metres odd of snow each season .....

Here is a little extract from an email about Whistler two weeks

" The skiing right now is bordering along the route of "epic".
It has been dumping like crazy all week, and there is deep snow

" Earlier in the week, we discovered a new run on
Whistler just off Bear Paw called "unsanctioned". It is an
awesome tree run with just enough steepness to be fun, but
not so much as it is scary. We did 3 runs through there in
the late morning, and each one was in fresh snow knee deep.

" Anyway, skiings great, more powder is expected this weekend,

" Current Whistler Blackcomb Snowbase: 310 cm / 122 in

Don't you hate that
