Current News – May 2018

As winter draws ever closer its time to reflect on a busy summer. We’ve upgraded more of our bulk storage tanks, put a new haul rope on the Main T-Bar along with all of the other annual maintenance and compliance work that’s needed to ensure we are as ready as we can be for the season.

Opening day for the 2018 season is locked and loaded for Saturday 7 July – the countdown is on! The staff team is almost complete and with several returning faces we’re sure they are as excited about getting the season underway as you are. As always the popular holiday Ski Weeks are very busy so make sure to book in now to reserve your place.

We will keep you posted via the website and Facebook with further updates as the 7 July gets closer – stay tuned.

Welcome To Cheeseman

Cheeseman is a friendly ski area which promotes a fun, family environment in an alpine setting. We are open to the public (you don’t need to be a member to ski here) and are the closest club ski area to Christchurch,  just 90 minutes (approximately 99km) drive away. The mountain has a sunny aspect with groomed runs and off-piste terrain catering for all abilities. It has two T-bar lifts (Main T-bar and Ridge T-bar) which provide access to the whole mountain; and a learners’ rope tow in a dedicated learners’ area. For adventurers looking for un-tracked trails and off-piste experiences, Mt Cockayne offers challenging skiing and fantastic views of the Craigieburn Range. The Ridge T-bar also offers access to the back country for day trips. Please note that there is no ski patrol beyond the ski area boundary therefore you are entirely responsible for your own safety.
