We are nearly half way through August already – where do the weeks go? The past few days have been pretty busy on the hill as we crank through the events which began with Club Champs last weekend, Secondary School Racing on Tuesday and Accounts vs Lawyers corporate day yesterday! We have the final Club Champs race, the Slalom, this coming Sunday at 10:30am along with race practice afternoon from 1pm which leads into the Primary & Intermediate School Champs on Sunday 25 August.
We’ve received a couple of further light dustings over recent days which has kept the snow pack freshened up and we are hopeful of a reasonable dump later this week – fingers crossed! The upper mountain is still in great shape and which daily grooming the main runs either side of the Main T Bar are popular. Upper mountain off piste still has good cover and whilst its a little firm early on by mid-morning most days its softened up nicely.
On Tuesday afternoon we commissioned the new Webcam so everyone is pretty stoked to see this running and now we have a good representation of the good upper mountain snow cover. Check it out at www.mtcheeseman.co.nz/weather/webcam/
Wellington Ski Weekers arrived on Sunday afternoon and have been enjoying the benefits of staying at Snowline Lodge for that true Ski In – Ski Out mountain holiday experience. With daily lessons, meals, accommodation, lift passes and much more as part of the overall package its a pretty hard deal to beat! We have a few spaces available on the next 2 Ski Weeks: “Open” (18 – 24 Aug) & “Family 1” (25 – 31 Aug) so why not come up and join us? Check-out Accommodation Options Here.
A reminder to Club Members that we are holding our Mid Season Meeting this coming Monday – More info on our Events Page. This is a chance to catch up on how the season has been going with reports from key staff & committee members and also a good opportunity for members to have their say.
