Queenstown man snowboards into town from home after 'weather bomb' hits

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Otago News

A Queenstown man stepped out of his house, jumped on his snowboard and headed into town after snow "belted down” on Monday.

The snow came from a “weather bomb” or “bomb cyclone”, which brought spring snow to parts of the South Island.

Queenstown man Tom Woodward, who lives in the elevated suburb of Fernhill, said people were cheering as he snowboarded past buses and stuck cars this morning.
