Good news for all local snow-bunnies in the South Island. It has been announced that the early bird season passes sale for the 2011 New Zealand ski season has been extended until 14 April 2011!

Locals and 2010 pass holders can get their hands on a ski pass bargain until 14 April and choose from the following: the NZSkipass gives you access to Coronet Peak, Mt Hutt and The Remarkables, the Queenstown Pass lets you ski The Remarkables and Coronet Peak, or you can get early bird ski passes for individual ski areas including mid-week options if you’re on a budget. If you get an NZ Ski Season Pass you’ll also enjoy a 20% discount at Ohau Snow Fields for the 2011 ski season. Prices for early bird season passes range from NZ$429 to NZ$999 for adults. For more details head to www.nzski.com.

In other ski news it has been announced that Porters is planning to open its slopes on 24 June 2011 and they have frozen last year’s season pass rates. Whether you want to ski the North or South Island, try heli-skiing, get into back-country skiing or hit the terrain parks with your snowboard, check out our Ski & Snowboard Section to plan your 2011 ski trip now. If you get in early you’ll get bargains on accommodation so you have more dollars to spend on important things like après-ski!

That's good news that they have extended the early bird Season Pass sale, as I can imagine a lot of people, that would normally have been on the ball with getting in early, are still struggling from the earthquake (although that only really applies to people here in Christchurch). I just wanted to post a link regarding Snow Biking that is allowed at all major ski fields here in NZ. If you follow the link to the blog, then you can have a bit of a read up about it as it is a very interesting and exciting sport, and great for people that are new to the slopes. There are currently Snow Bikes listed on Trade Me (www.trademe.co.nz) for sale. Take a look at the blog and leave a comment as to what you think... http://chaseone-snowbiking.blogspot.com/
