Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 8 June 27, 1945
A week of southerly weather covered the ranges with the first snow of winter, resulting in a sudden exodus of skithusiasts from Wellington, during King's Birthday weekend. To add to their joy, a moderate anti-cyclone settled over the entire North Island for the whole three days. As was expected, the standard of skiing was low, and tuition nonexistent. However, everyone was enthusiastic and adventurous—several skinned noses and backsides testify to this.
