Lots of sun this week and no snow. Things have been rapidly warming up and the snow melting. Skiing is fairly limited now at the main skifields in Canterbury.

Lots of patches now down south, even at Remarks and Cardrona and in the Treble Cone Saddle. However, the runs are holding up well and there should be good skiing into the NZ school holidays.
