Cheeseman Is Open

The great news is that we are now open for 2014 – a little late but better late than never!

Sunday 10 August  was locked in as opening day and it dawned clear and fine and just got better and better as the day progressed. Whilst the snow was thin in places the skiing and riding was awesome and there were heaps of smiling faces about the hill. Just on closing the next snow bearing storm front began to roll in with winds increasing – the timing was perfect!

Monday and Wednesday saw us closed whilst the weather system delivered 30cms of new snow over Monday and Tuesday which has transformed the slopes to what they would normally look like this time of year. We opened again yesterday and there were plenty of fresh lines for all to enjoy and there was even a sprinkle of new snow during the late afternoon to keep things fresh.

Wellington Ski Week kicks off this coming Sunday and we are looking forward to welcoming Hilary and the team to Cheeseman for what will be our first proper full ski week for the season. There are beds available at Snowline this weekend but it is filling up so don’t delay in booking. Forest Lodge will only be available for group bookings for the remainder of the season.

The weather is looking excellent for tomorrow and through the weekend so no excuses – get on up here.

Due to the late start of the season we have had to do a complete re-shuffle of events. To check out the current events Calendar please Click Here

The Primary & Intermediate Champs were scheduled to be run on Sunday 24 August but due to the late start to the season and current snowpack conditions we are still making assessments on the race course area and a decision will be made on Sunday 17 August as to whether or not this event will go ahead. If we do run the race it will be Sunday 31 August.

Confirmed Events Coming up:

Wednesday 20 August – Accountants & Lawyers Corporate Day

Wednesday 27 August – Architects & Engineers Corporate Day


Don’t forget to check the website report for current snow, weather, facility and road conditions – the reports will be update during the day as conditions change.

We look forward to seeing you up here soon to make the most of the albeit late winter conditions.

Cheers Cam & the Cheeseman Crew.
