A healthy 50cm of snow has blanketed the south island of NZ. The resorts aren't too far off opening, time to dust off that gear or come in and treat yourself to some new stuff. The forecast looks good, with more on the way. Keep an eye out on that, and treat yourself to an overseas holiday in Hobbit Land! And remember that you can get your GST back on purchases when you travel OS, which is a nice little bonus..
