Take your mittens out of hibernation and pop on your snuggliest coat because Auckland is getting a whole lotta snow! You heard us right. First there was the ice rink, then the giant ice slide and now, a winter wonderland Snow Dome is landing in Aotea Square.
From today (yes, you can hit the snow today!) until the 24th of July, a five-metre-tall, eight-metre-wide Snow Dome will be chocka with snow (a whopping 3-4 cubic metres) waiting for you to come and play in it. 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.
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.
What: Snow Dome
When: 10am—4pm daily, from now—24th July
Where: Aotea Square
