Packed Powder


The 2cm of dry, powder snow that fell out of the sky yesterday has been substantially boosted by overnight snowmaking on the lower mountain trails. Get up ahead of the weekend warriors and enjoy acres of world class grooming, glorious sunshine and no queuing at the lifts. If you venture off-trail, please be mindful of rock hazards lurking just below the surface of the snow. Please also note that snowmaking will continue throughout the day as conditions allow.


This morning we have crystal clear skies, light Southerly breezes in the base area and unlimited visibility. Forecast: A fine, sunny day with Southerlies easing. Feeling very cold today so please dress warmly.

Access Road

Chains need to be fitted to 2WD vehicles from Canterbury View to begin with today. Check signage as this could change as more grit is applied through the day. Expect reduced traction on a frozen, gritted road surface. Our chain hire and fitting service is operating - EFTPOS is accepted. You need to bring your own chains if you have low profile tyres. Please report any incidences of dangerous driving or excessive speed to our car parkers so we may follow up with the driver.

Don't Forget...

Fischer and Head are both up today demonstrating their latest ski technology - pop over to see them at Quad base and try out some of their gear. Corona Music Session will be at Mt Hutt this Saturday with New Zealand-based electronic duo Del Amor playing live on Hubers Hutt deck. With numerous rock hazards lurking just off the groomed trails, we strongly recommend the use of helmets at Mt Hutt and sell a great range in our retail shop located on the ground floor of our base lodge.
