We have the T-Bar OPEN up to tower 8 which is two-thirds of the way to the top, and with snowmaking overnight we are looking to go higher up the mountain soon. Lifts operating are the learners tow, Intermediate Platter, and the T-bar unloading at T8. All lifts are on learners pass rates so it's a great opportunity to get up here. All open trails have been groomed and are ready to be carved up. Today we also have some new features going in for the groms and shredders, for the weekend we have a small gap jump, our 8m box and a secret feature. All mountain facilities and services are OPEN today. This includes our Mountain Shuttle which departs the bottom carpark at 9am, 10am & 12pm with return runs at 3 & 4pm.
