Skiers Urged by Ski + Trek to Get Kitted Out for Australia and New Zealand Cold Snap

Ski wear company Ski + Trek advises skiers in the southern hemisphere to get kitted out for the rest of the ski season.


With the great skiing conditions in the southern hemisphere showing no sign of fading, ski wear supplier Ski + Trek has encouraged people to take advantage of the cold snap by getting kitted out in essential ski clothing.

The ski season is currently in full flow in Australia and New Zealand, with resorts across the two countries welcoming a multitude of skiers keen to hit the slopes.

One example is Mount Hotham in Victoria, Australia, which saw 31cm of fresh snow fall at the end of July, with the base depth reaching 100cm. Despite “unseasonably” warm weather in the subsequent couple of weeks, snow continues to fall at the resort.

In addition, the big freeze has hit New Zealand. According to The Telegraph, 30cm of new snow recently landed at Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Treble Cone. Some 50cm fell at Mount Hutt during the same period.

“The sun is out in the Queenstown and Wanaka areas and every seasoned skier and boarder worth their wax should be heading to the mountains,” the paper added.

And the team at Ski + Trek - a leading online supplier of ski wear - believes the blossoming ski industry down under presents a fantastic opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts.

Martin Rouse, owner of the firm, commented: "Australia and New Zealand are now really starting to come into their own as destinations for ski holidays, offering a refreshing alternative to the traditionally popular Alpine and US resorts. But it’s not just tourists hitting the slopes there; locals are enjoying the snow too.

"Here at Ski + Trek, we do not just supply clothing and equipment to skiers in the UK and Europe. We have a large customer base in the southern hemisphere and this winter we have seen a huge increase in the number of people based there visiting our website and purchasing our products. Compared to 2010, traffic to from New Zealand and Australia grew by 1,393% in June - August 2011, compared to the same period in 2010.

“With several weeks left in the southern hemisphere’s ski season, we would advise both locals and tourists heading onto the pistes to ensure they stock up on some high-quality ski clothing - an investment that will help them stay comfortable while skiing and ensure they get the maximum enjoyment from their time in the snow.”
