"NEW ZEALAND'S BEST KEPT SNOW SECRET."

SNOW CONDITIONS:

We are now closed for the season.

After a warm (8.8° max.) windy day on Tuesday (max. gust 95kph) and the forecast of more NW and warm temps mother nature has now made the call and our snow pack is just not holding up to the weather.

We have operated/open for 33 days this season and had some fantastic snow conditions after some of the snow storms. Just about all our school groups made it up and had great days of learning to ski and ride. Thank you everyone who has support our family operated ski area this season. See you back up here in 2022,

The Simpson's and 2021 Crew.

**  2021 Grabone vouchers will be able to be used in 2022 as part of the price for a full day pass **
