Friday was first day of opening for Snow Park NZ, with a 30cm base on Snow Park NZ's popular box run, patrons were treated to a great days skiing and boarding, under perfectly blue, sunny skies.

'Each and every member of the Snow Park team has done an absolutely amazing job getting ready for opening!' said Slopes Manager John Melville.

Recent cold temperatures allowed for top-to-bottom snowmaking over the past week, transforming Snow Park NZ into the winter wonderland that attracts snow enthusiasts from far and wide. With more runs expected to open soon, it's off to a great start!

Snow Park NZ is scheduled to be open seven days a week. Additional terrain with night skiing on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights will open as snowfall permits. During the school holidays coming up Saturday will also be open for nightriding.
