Last snowfall

We have excellent winter snow conditions with pockets of fresh powder in areas that weren’t explored yesterday. The snowmakers were busy refreshing trails overnight and the T-bar is OPEN to the top with maintrails Easy-way-home and Harry’s Way groomed to perfection. The platter and learners slopes are also serving up great skiing and riding conditions. ALL other mountain facilities are operating, this includes Snowschool, Rentals, Café, and Shuttle service from the bottom carpark.
