Its starting to look a lot like winter up here on the mountain with 20cm of new snow at the base lodge (1260m) & 30cm above the top of the 6 (1600m).
We're all itching to get out there however, with early season conditions, exposed or barely covered & unmanaged hazards and with our teams working towards a June 24 opening there is lots of equipment out on the field & access will remain closed to touring/hiking. We'll keep you updated on conditions in the lead up to the season.
Its looking like a clear dry spell for the next week or so. Still a few weeks away from our June 24 opening date to watch this space!
