One mans garbage is another mans gold. And there is gold in them thar hills after this storm cycle. The snow pack is building rather nicely. If you are itching to hit the slopes this coming weekend then maybe include Friday in your plans if you are going to Mt Ruapehu as the NZSIF Demo Day will be at Turoa from 9am - 4pm with ski and snowboard equipment from all the major brands. Every snowfield is up and running so check out the snow reports and stay up to date.
