New Zealand Winter Snow Season Outlook… IT’S ON!
We are excited to announce that with the drop in COVID-19 restrictions to Level 1, the New Zealand Ski Resorts are set to keep the chairs spinning all winter long.
Despite earlier concerns that our anticipated mountain-life mightn’t get the green light, it has been confirmed we are on! With Coronet Peak set to open June 26, The Remarkables from July 4 and Mt Hutt kicking off the lift spinning on June 12... just to name a few. The 2020 snow season is looking good!
With normal resort operations set to resume for winter 2020, it’s time to pack your F-Light Board bag, grab your Gum Series Jacket to match with this team pick, the Search Bib. The mountains are calling.
