Classic South Island Snow Storm

Lewis Pass, New Zealand / June 2019

This season’s winter has been particularly mild, but with a South Island snow storm on the way, we jumped on a plane bound for Christchurch, picked up a 4×4 and headed towards the Lewis Pass where we hunkered down and waited for the storm to arrive.

It didn’t take long for the fun destroying cone deployers to be out in force, closing the road. We did however get a good dumping of snow, turning the Lewis Pass into a winter wonderland. Magic!

Even got the drone out in the snow to capture some stunning footage.

From here, we headed to Arthur’s pass. Not as much snow had fallen here, but it was rather chilly (-8 degrees C). So cold that part of the river froze right over.
