Snow Report Last Updated: Thu 30 May 16:25 PM

High cloud south of Lake Sumner, fine elsewhere. High cloud spreading north in the afternoon with rain developing about the Main Divide.

Our snowmakers have poured 25,000 tonnes of snow onto our mid and lower mountain trails this week and we have a solid 30cm snow base. With just two weeks to go things are currently looking OK for our planned opening on 14th June - provided the potentially warm and wet NW system heading our way on Saturday doesn't nail us too badly! Keep your fingers and toes crossed that we come out the other side of the weekend intact! Next update on Monday morning.

Maps

Do You Know The Snow Code?

Limit your speed in busy areas. Match your speed to surrounding skiers and riders and be prepared for others to make sudden changes in direction or speed.

Stay 5m from others. If less than 5m from others you must slow down. The faster you go the more space you must give others.

Give way to those downhill. Look before you leap. Snowboarders: take care turning onto your heel edge.

Only stop where you can be seen from above. Always look uphill before moving again. Only stop on the edge of trails or beside fixed objects.

Backcountry

Please refer to our Ski Touring page and the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council's Backcountry page to read about how to stay safe when touring.

Terrain Closures

Any terrain closures will be indicated on the day on signage around the ski area. Please be respectful of all closures as these are in place for your safety. If you are not sure please ask one of our Ski Patrollers who are stationed around the unload areas of our lifts. Our lifts access certain terrain that suits different ability levels - to be sure you have the right lift pass to access the type of lift and terrain for your skiing/riding ability, please ask our Guest Services staff if you need assistance. When riding a lift always ensure the safety bar is lowered on your chair. If you are unsure about the lift, just ask the nearest Lift Operator to slow it down for you. All lifts operate between 9am-4pm daily, weather & snow conditions permitting.
