Another dump of snow has just arrived – 20cms in total! Come up to Cheeseman and leave thre miserable Christchurch weather behind!

The skiing and riding has been awesome today with a bluebird day just to make things even better. The snow started falling on Tuesday afternoon at the conclusion of the Secondary schools racing, continuing off and on during during Wednesday and into the early hours of this morning. Looks like there’s some more snow heading our way late Sunday, continuing through Monday and Tuesday – see the weekend weather below.

Coming up this weekend we are running Club Champs (see details below) and Saturday night is shaping up to be a great night at Snowline Lodge. Next week we have Wellington Ski Weekers in and the following Sunday we host the Primary & Intermediate School Champs.
