Mountain Update – 21 August

Its been a fantastic week up in the Craigieburn Range with a run of clear and calm weather which has enabled everyone to get on up here and enjoy the fantastic snow at Cheeseman. The weekend was especially stunning and the lifts were running to capacity both days.

Its currently snowing lightly up here today with a cm or two having settled already this morning. The forecast is for clearing skies during the day and clear weather for Friday. Looks like Sunday will be the pick of the weekend days so get the jobs out of the way and get on up here!

Yesterday we hosted Accountants and Lawyers Corporate day. The weather started off a little cloudy with the sun eventually burning away the cloud mid-morning to reveal a beautiful day. After a morning of free skiing and the odd Hummingbird Coffee from our Cafe the race got underway at 1:00pm and was followed by prize-giving and drinks in the Daylodge.

Wellington Ski Week is still in full swing up here at Snowline Lodge and everyone has clocked up plenty of skiing and riding this week. We have spaces available on ski weeks through the September / Spring weeks and don’t forget if you ca’n’t do a whole week why not just pop up for a day or two and stay a night on our DBBL accommodation packages – for further info or to book online Click Here.
