Winter's on the way

Serious isobar maps at Metservice.com; the first big southerly blast of the 2011 winter is headed our way.

This morning on Morning Report, weather reports were saying that the Te Anau to Milford Sound road was chains-only, and another 10-20cm of snow is forecast for Tuesday morning.

This is all leading nicely towards a late June start to the ski season at Mt Hutt and other higher-altitude fields like Dobson. I'm ready, my skis are waxed (a year ago), the car is good, I have 15 days of leave to use up - go!
