    Question is in the subject line:

    What % chance do you think Selwyn will open this weekend? (June 11-13th)

    Opinions? As a beginner going somewhere with nice even slopes sounds the goods to me, but do you guys think it will be open?

    Thanks

    they will probably be open, if they get a bit out of this system and with following cold temps they will be able to make heaps snow. just a matter of whether they think they can attract the crowds to make opening worth while.

    Dont worry kiter, Selwyn website says they will be open with at least New Chum on Saturday. They hope to get Township and Racecourse open as well, that would be awesome for opening weekend!

    Hey Mils,

    We will be open this weekend with at least New Chum but hopefully more. We have started to make snow and will be making more. Forecasts are saying 20-30cms over Tues, Weds and Thursday so don't panic! Come up on Saturday, it will be amazing.

    It wasn't 100% by any means. But it was open and it was fun for a June long weekend. This week will be marginal if they can't make any more snow or get any real stuff. But fine for anyone learning to ski. Week End was a blast - got the first tickets of the year and went from there. It was drunk free - but plenty of learners to pick one's way past. But better than looking at cold surf and snow cams wishing one was there.

    It was EPIC today will upload photos once I get them all, but race course was sooo much fun! Going down it with 30cms of soft snow just spraying out as we turns was so awesome! To be the 1st lads tearing down there leaving massive awesome gouges with every turn felt amazing.

    We all have the best day today, the staff were awesome too, they were really helpful and they help pump us up cheering us on etc.

    Such an amazing place, thanks for the awesome day, thanks Selwyn!

    Photo's! (I should probably change the subject line hey!)

    The view from top of racecourse

    [​IMG]

    The look down racecourse after a bunch of runs, see how deep the depressions are? [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The lads

    [​IMG]

    Pulling off a grab air on a fun little jump we built ourselves (poorly) [​IMG] (landed it too!) It looks a lot bigger than it was [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A fantastic snowboarding experience! (my 3rd time snowboarding)

    Thanks Selwyn!

    Great photos Mils. I'm in Ski Hire for most of the day so next time you're at Selwyn look out for me and say hello! Goes for you too Miffy [​IMG]

    Notty - When it comes to snow-making we need it to be closer to -3 and low (?) humidity levels.

    No big school groups until the 6th of July Miffy and even then it's only 44 kids. Some come on up snow is looking ok and both the small and medium terrain parks are open.
