1. Re: fox rain ..

the West Coast of the South Island has some of the highest rainfall in NZ. it doesnt mean that it rains more often than say in Auckland, but the accumulation of rain is higher becasue the rain drops are larger.

This year all the of NZ including the West Coast is haveing a drought, and even at the Glaciers there has not been signifcant rain since mid january.

the least amount of rain fall generally is Feb march April. The galciers can be visited all year round, and equipment for the guided walk is provided including rain coats if needed
