It is starting to look a lot like Christmas in Queenstown.

Contractors were busy on Wednesday morning putting up the resort’s public Christmas tree at the Village Green.

The large, bauble-covered tree drew plenty of attention as contractors used a cherry-picker to put it  together piece by piece.

While summer might be just a week away, Monday’s heavy snow has it looking like a white Christmas in Queenstown, at least for now.
