Mountain Update – 28 August

Spring is virtually here as we have enjoyed an extended period of hot sunny bluebird days since the last dusting of snow and update last Thursday. The high which is dominating the weather at present appears to be locked in place well into next week so now is the perfect opportunity to hit the slopes with warm weather and longer days – don’t forget the Main T Bar  at Cheeseman always runs to 4:30!

With Snowline Lodge already fully booked this coming weekend we will be opening up Forest Lodge for casual guests for the weekend only. Great accommodation deals are available during weekdays at Snowline Lodge Click Here for more info.

Great skiing and riding to be had on the upper mountain.


Weekend Weather

The fine clear bulebird weather continues with valley fog in the mornings which we are well above anyway – see the picture below which staff have enjoyed the view of for several mornings from the staff bathroom!

Friday 29 August  

Fine apart from areas of fog or valley cloud below 1000 metres morning and night.

Saturday 30 August

Mainly fine apart from areas of low cloud or fog morning and evening.

Sunday 31 August

Low cloud or fog morning and night, high cloud increasing. Light winds, northeasterlies at upper levels



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

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the Primary & Intermediate School Champs due to the late winter season and lack of substancial snow falls which we have had other years. We had hoped that we would have another good snow fall before this Sunday but unfortunately with a high pressure weather system locked in place over us at present  there is no significant snow in the forecast for the next 5 – 7 days.Read More…..

Events Coming up:

Sunday 31 August – Club Championships

Saturday 6 September – Pirate Day.

Saturday 13 September – Therma Tech Undie 500


6:00am and another stunning sunrise begins to the East. Lights from the ticket office are blaring as the Snow Reports are updated – some staff have already been up since 5:30 already! Photo: Cam

See you up here soon – stayed tuned for another mountain update next week.

Cheers Cam & the Cheeseman Crew.
