Sight of white a delight for some

A cold and wet front may have made life unpleasant for most people in Otago and Southland yesterday, but not at the skifields.

Cardrona Alpine Resort received more than 10cm of fresh snow as preparations continued for its opening day in early June.

The resort's communications executive, Jen Houltham, said at lunchtime yesterday the resort had already received 10cm of snow across the mountain as well as 50cm wind drifts.

Elsewhere, Treble Cone general manager Toby Arnott said yesterday the mountain had received 5cm of snow overnight.
