All Blacks & Snow White in NZ01:10 PM on Fri 02 Sep 2011

For Rugby Fanatics & Snow Carvers heading to NZ, here's a double whammy bonus!

New Zealand is set for an extended ski season this year, with predictions that the ski-fields will be open and operational up until mid-October.

After a slow start to the season, New Zealand has enjoyed an abundant snowfall throughout winter’s latter months leaving ski fields in both the North and South Islands in good shape for an extended season.

A large portion of this snowfall is the direct result of the country’s heaviest snow storm in 50 years which occurred in mid-August - coating ski fields across the country.

The spring ski-season also aligns with the largest international sporting event of the year – Rugby World Cup 2011 being hosted in New Zealand for six weeks commencing September 9.
