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.
