From Lately, 10:25 pm on 10 June 2021

South Island skifields are trying to convince the Government to help them bring in specialist workers from overseas such as groomer operators as border restrictions continue to halt the flow of international workers. The companies operating Cardona and Treble Cone ski fields have between them been allowed to bring in three international groomer operators and 14 ski and snowboard instructors, but NZSki, which operates some of the South Islands most popular skifields hasn't been able to bring in any yet. The chief executive of NZSki, Paul Anderson explains what's needed.
