Surface Condition


Skiing & Boarding

We're kicking off the weekend with tops of 3 degrees today and partly cloudy skies. The winds are set to stay light, coming in from the south west and remaining that way all day, so we're in for a calm and fantastic day on the hill. We had a good freeze overnight with temps dipping below -3, so the cover is set to start lightning fast this morning, softening up as we get closer to our top temps. Pick for the Beginners is Long Arm, for a wide forgiving slope to work on those pizzas, the Intermediates will find Meadows the perfect place to carve up the powder on the sides and enjoy the recent snow, and the Advanced should head to the top of Galah's into Plum Pine for a nice little challenge. 5 lifts spinning with 100% terrain open, we'll see you on the hill to kick off the best weekend for conditions in the season,

Snowy Mountains Forecast

A slow-moving high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the northern New South Wales coast, while a trough over the inland is weakening and shifting west.

When I was there a few weekends ago, the new Snow maker was still doing testing and trials. Working but not up to full capacity. The plan will be to have it running The plan will be to have it running 24 hours today 24 hrs a day. Will have a chat to a few more folk on sun. Hopefully going up then.

jezzak: When will Selywn be receiving their new snowmaker? (similar to the one in Buller)
Went to Selwyn today with the kids to have a play. According to an incomprehensible Scottish lifty (Hi! if you're reading), it arrived in Sydney yesterday, and will be on its way down as soon as it clears customs. Other than that, they'd done well to farm a single strip of snow under the New Chum chair, probably about 10-20cm deep and 20ish metres wide. All good fun. Plenty of families there having a play on the patches of snow scattered around the place, but pretty much no one but us and occasional staff members on the actual run. They're suffering from some strong inversions at the moment. Haven't been able to make snow for ages, yet the creek that flows into Three Mile Dam was frozen over at 4pm solid enough to throw rocks on. Guess we know where all the cold air is draining away to.
