New Zealand Weather & Snow Forecasts

When it comes to weather forecasts, we’re all have our own opinions on which is the best site!

We get our daily snow reports and weather conditions direct from the ski areas, but weather forecasts we leave to the experts. Here’s a few sites we use, feel free let us know your favourites!

Snow Forecasts

We’ll there’s only one really, www.snow-forecast.com. We use their data on our site, and where you see snow forecasts on the snow report pages, this is where it’s come from.  For years we never rated the snow forecasts from Metservice, but we note that have improved. So they are worth keeping an eye on.

In the old days they said “you can never trust a ski area” when discussing snow depth, fresh snow, or the daily forecast. But that’s all changed now and we think the best people to trust for the days forecast are the ski areas themselves. They know the local data and conditions. But again, Metservice has lifted its game, so they are worth watching.  

One of our favorites however is Metvuw, how could it not be? Metvuw is basically the bible!

We also like however the four day forecast from Australia, as they give us some advance notice of what is coming.  And the interactive weather and wave forecast maps are good too. 

But, we also like the general weather forecasts from www.yr.no
