Winter is back at Mt Ruapehu Ski Area.

Over 20,000 snow enthusiasts made it out to Whakapapa and Turoa last weekend after consistent snow fall left levels sitting at more than two metres on both sides.

Those that didn't make it can rejoice because the excellent conditions are forecast to continue.

"Skiing conditions are phenomenal and it's great to see people making the most of the fantastic snow and coming to the mountain during the week – perhaps even pulling a snowie," says Mt Ruapehu Customer Relations Manager, Annah Dowsett.

The long range forecast is expecting a mixed bag of weather over the next couple of days including some snow with another expected bluebird weekend.

"We're encouraging Kiwis to keep an eye on the forecast as conditions change and jump in the car when the weather's this great to experience the awesome conditions," says Annah.

Will you be heading to the snow this weekend?
