Snow Conditions
Machine Groomed
We've had a dusting (2cm) of quality dry snow on the upper mountain overnight which has been redistributed by strong winds into powder nuggets across squeaky groomed runs down to the lower M1. The lower mountain received some wetter flakes which the grooming team have smoothed out meticulously. They'll tickle up the beginners area just before we open to make sure it's at its best first thing for those school holiday first turns.
Weather Conditions
-6.5°
Some light snow showers received overnight. It's a morning George de Mestral (the inventor of Velcro) dreamed of, i.e. it's pretty breezy. Strong winds are forecast, reducing later in the day. Long fine spells, with snow showers developing and lowering to 300m by evening. Make sure you wrap up warm, and apply extra Velcro for your woolly hat. Be aware, wind levels could effect lift operations today.
Road Conditions
Open
The road is presently chain free for all vehicles, however chains must be carried when travelling on alpine roads. There is snow in the forecast later today, chains maybe require on all vehicles, so don't forget yours. The access road is heavily gritted, so do drive with care. Watch out for icy patches.

BACK COUNTRY ADVISORY

If you decide to go skiing or snowboarding in the back country you need to carry the right safety equipment. Avalanches happen, so it’s important to choose your terrain wisely.

It is good practice to provide a contact person with details of your back country trip. You can also pop into our Ski Patrol office at any time during opening hours to check on local conditions. Please be aware that our Ski Patrol do not patrol outside the Ski Area Boundary and only venture here in the case of a known emergency. You need to be well prepared and self-sufficient.

Please visit the Mountain Safety website for details on requirements to ensure a safe back country adventure.
