Brrrrr! Auckland’s Getting Snow!

By Sharleen Shergill - 31 May 2017

The snow gods heard your cry for alp. Take your mittens out of hibernation and pop on your snuggliest coat because Auckland is getting a whole lotta snow! You heard us right. The winter wonderland in Aotea Square is back and this year it has a new Skate Path! 

From 16th of June until the 23rd of July, the ice rink will be ready for you. Plus, the epic Snow Dome will also be returning in July. It's going to be full of snow, ready for you to come and play. It's time to build a snowman, get your snow angel on, or simply lose the plot over the fact that you get to frolic in the snow…in Auckland.

For the first time, there's even going to be a free Winter Lounge (thanks to Auckland Live). It'll be all kinds of #lit to celebrate Mataraki. If that's not enough light for you, there's even going to be an installation of Mountain of Light by Angus Muir Design. Making all your childhood dreams of a white christmas come true. 

For all we snow, the fun doesn't stop there. There will also be themed weekends such as Americana party on 4 July, a Rugby Fever weekend, and an Ice Sports weekend. There are no excuses to miss out. Live life on the edge, or in this case on thin ice. 

The City of Sails has never seen anything like this before and if you’re anything like us, it’s pretty much the best damn thing you’ve heard all winter. Mittens on! The white fluffy stuff is waiting.
