Four meters of snow fell on Mount Hutt ski area in New Zealand in two days

An incredible snowfall hit Mount Hutt and severe weather hit the South Island. Canterbury received two to three months’ worth of rainfall in a few days.

Mount Hutt ski resort manager James McKenzie said four to five feet of snow fell on that mountain Monday through Tuesday.

About 40 to 50 centimeters also fell around the base. He said they had trouble accessing the top of the mountain, so they took a helicopter up there.

McKenzie said the snow at the summit was covered with a crust of ice.
