A southerly shift overnight has ushered in cold temperatures and light snowfall since 5am, very cold at the top of the mountain so wrap up warm. Snowmaking has been running all night adding a fresh layer to the piste which is groomed full width across all trails, skiing very nicely indeed. We're expecting visability to improve and sunshine for lunch.


A large high is stationed off the South West coast drawing cold air across the lower south island. Moderate southerly early this morning reducing to a breeze by midday as the high pressure system moves inland. Skies overcast early this morning clearing and becoming sunny by midday. Wrap up warm if you're up for the morning, currently 6 below at the top of the mountain!
