          I would like to ask what the weather was like in August/September last year to ascertain what to expect to be able to do at the Lodge in I guess what is late winter. Is there snow on the road from Christchurch this time of the year, will the walks around the lodge be on snow and the bike track, will this also likely be snow covered. I am trying to work out how long to stay and what there will be to do. Any help would be appreciated. If it will not be outdoor weather then I assume one can drive to see other places nearby? Also i note there is an advertisement for a helicopter ride over the Mt Cook and the glacier, how can I find out cost and details for this please. Thanks Val
