A mix of fine days and little top-ups of snow has kept conditions great and the skiing good fun in Australia, while New Zealand has returned to snowy conditions after a lean spell.
Sunshine and nice conditions over the weekend. A few showers fell through the week including on Wednesday which brought a snowfall to freshen the slopes at some resorts.
A few snowfalls tending to cloud which will clear through the weekend as temperatures warm a little.
