It's closing time on the southern slopes
GRANT BRYANT IN QUEENSTOWN
How would you rate this year's ski season?
Poll: Queenstowner Jimmy Andrews and his daughters Ruby and Charlie donned their brightest ski gear as they joined the punters fare welling the 2013 snow season at The Remarkables yesterday.
A day of bright sunshine signalled the end of both the Wakatipu and Wanaka ski seasons.
Spring conditions were in full effect on The Remarkables and Cardrona, which also had its final day.
This winter got off to a roaring start, with huge snowstorms dumping enormous quantities of snow on to mountains region-wide.
However, the driest, warmest July on record since 1878 meant that snow had thinned out by August.
Despite that, plenty of skiers and boarders on The Remarkables said they had had a great winter, despite the sometimes trying conditions.
