Mountain Update – 22 August

Another week has quickly passed us by and I wish I could say we have had the big dump of snow everyone has be anticipating but unfortunately the storms cycles that had big promises have eventuated to little more than the odd snow flurry. We remain optimistic that we will still get some snow and in the meantime upper mountain coverage is still in reasonable shape and with continued maintenance T Bar 1 lift line remains open.

This week on the mountain we have enjoyed the company ski weekers on “Open Week” and yesterday we hosted a new corporate race event – Architects vs Engineers Race day which was enjoyed by 40 racers.

Coming up this Sunday we are running the Canterbury Primary & Intermediate Champs (further info below) and we will welcome in Ski Weekers on Family 1 week.

Canterbury Primary & Intermediate Race Day

Sunday 25 August

We are pleased to again be the venue for the Canterbury Primary and Intermediate Ski races,
an event where teams representing their schools participate for both individual and team

This fun skiing event consists of dual slalom course for boys and girls of all age groups from
Year 1 to Year 8. No previous ski-racing experience is necessary, merely sufficient skill to
ride a T-bar Ski Lift and ski groomed, easy slopes.

There will be medals for individual performance, plus an overall team trophy for both primary and intermediate school teams.The emphasis is on fun, and introducing children to the excitement of ski-racing. Most of the children’s time will be spent just skiing freely and enjoying other activities on the day.

Entries are now closed for this event. For further info on this event Click Here

Please be sure to check in on the day for current road, weather & snow conditions.
