Today the Learners tow, Platter, T-bar, and terrain park tow are open and the West bowl will operate after slope assessments. We have groomed trails on piste and off trail is variable with spring like conditions. The Torpedo7 terrain park is open and all tobogganing lanes are open as well. The cafe, Snow School and Rentals are all operating today. This weekend we have the Atomic Ski Reps with their demo skis on mountain, this is a great opportunity to try before you buy.

The road is Open today, with chains on 2wd vehicles from chains bay 1, and 4wd vehicles to carry chains. Please remember when travelling on the Rainbow Access Road ALL vehicles are required to have snow chains at ALL times, as we are in an alpine environment with snow in the forecast and you may need to use chains on the downward journey. Please drive with care and obey all road signage and direction from staff. Please take care on the valley road as there may be ice entering and exiting the fords. There is a shuttle service operating from the bottom car park for those without chains or not wishing to drive up the mountain.
