Great News!! We have had a further 1- 2cms wet snow in the base area and more higher up the mountain. Our groomer has been out through the night and all open slopes have been groomed – We have the T-Bar OPEN up to tower 8 which is two-thirds of the way to the top, 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. We have the Community Terrain Park up and running, with a gap jump, a box a gas pipe and a hip with two features. All mountain facilities and services are OPEN today. This includes our Mountain Shuttle which departs the bottom car park at 9am, 10am & 12pm with return runs at 3 & 4pm.
