Tomorrow is the last official day of winter and Saturday marks the first day of Spring for 2012. The days are now noticeably longer and the sun sets over the top of the Ridge much later in the day so as we normally do during spring the tows will run a little later on selected weekend days when the weather is good. Depending on our closing date there is only 3 or 4 weeks left in the 2012 season so make the most of the remaining time and give it heaps on the slopes!

Another busy ski week has been on the go at Snowline Lodge – lots of kids having fun and parents have had time to themselves whilst the nanny has taken care of the groms at strategic times during the day. Coming up this Saturday is the Undie 500 (see below) and already some of the staff have been out practising. But we don’t want the staff to take all the prizes so make sure you come on up and join in on this fun race with some proceeds going towards “Blue September” (prostate cancer fundraising). Check out the photo below of the Cheesie Chicks trying out their gear!

For the most part weather this week has been settled and tomorrow is looking ok too with a change late Saturday afternoon / night, but clearing again Sunday – check the weather update below for more details.
