A lack of snow in the central plateau has led to one of the worst ski seasons in decades for northern ski fields.

The tops of Mount Ruapehu and Tongariro had a good dumping of snow at the start of the season, but since then the slopes are looking bare.

Tūroa ski fields are currently closed. Whakapapa’s Happy Valley is still open, but the main parts of the ski field remain closed.

The poor season has been due to a lack of snow and unusually high temperatures.
