GREAT NEWS!! We have had 35cms of wind affected SNOW fall across the mountain returning the BOW to a perfect winter wonderland!! Easy Way, Harrys way and Roller Coaster are all groomed as well as our Learners area and will be skiing awesomely. Off-piste areas will be on hold due to Ski Patrol control work and opened as appropriate. Please respect all closures. There will be awesome soft powder snow off piste but beware of unmarked rocks just under the surface. The Terrain park will be on hold until it can be re-shaped. Big thanks to Rich, Corley and Jono working hard through the night! All of our mountain facilities and services are Open today.
