We have had a dusting of snow overnight and it is snowing now giving us a light freshen up on all our slopes. It is a return to winter conditions and adds to the Remarkable experience we have on offer for all. Dress warm today!


Currently it is snowing with moderate southerly winds. Forecast is for snow showers to clear and winds to remain the same throughout the day.

Access Road

Road is clear at moment but chain restrictions may be put in place if snow starts to settle on road, so please carry chains. Drive with care and maintain two way access. If a traveling a little slower please let other vehicles by you where possible.

Don't Forget...

We have the best conditions of the season, whether you are a Learner (first time on snow) or an expert there is something for everyone. Don't forget your goggles and gloves today, if you need some they can be purchased at the Snow Shop with plenty of other bargins to be had - just inside the entrance foyer to the right. The ICE BAR is proving a real winner where you can sit and take in the true alpine scenery in every direction - accessed along Curvey B trail top of Curvey Basin Chair.
