Chains are required on 2WD from Info Booth. Self-fit chain hire is available at the Info Booth. We have heavily gritted our road. Please drive with care and maintain 2-way access, keep to the left and observe the 40km/h speed limit.

After a short, sharp regroom of the main trails, the Summit 6 and Nor'west Express will run from 6pm to 8pm so we can ski/ride by the light of the full moon. Fireworks and DJ Monika along with our full cafe/restaurant service will provide for a unique night of entertainment and fun. Fireworks starting at 7pm.

Backcountry Latest Update:

Please refer to the Canterbury backcountry report and view our Ski Touring page.

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.
