Just got tickets to Christchurch from 30th Dec to 13th Jan so will be spending about 2 weeks on South Island. Would have wanted to go in November but the promo tickets are snapped up so fast.
Right now, I am reading my Lonely Planet book and gathering info from several websites as I try to work out my road trip iti. Before I come up with the iti and ask for suggestions...would just like to find out...how is the summer there like in terms of taking snow capped mountains etc? Cos I read some posts on here before saying some of the mountain ranges are just an ugly grey in summer so kinda dampens my mood a little...My last 2 vacation trips were during winter so its hard to get clear skies...and I was hoping summer would give me a better chance of clear blue skies with nice mountain ranges in the background...
Can anyone whos been there during summer provide some info?
