The delights of silky powder by night...

Night skiing is another Broken River highlight. This is a fun and social time which draws locals from nearby Castle Hill village and Springfield as well as the keen from Christchurch city 110 kms away. Dinner up on the field at Palmer Lodge adds an enjoyable, social dimension to the night.

And the snow ... ahh there is nothing quite like the velvety, ice-cold powder snow of night time and the thrill of speeding down the slopes in the half dark. The sense of exhilaration is addictive. Definitely worth the experience – several times over!

Night skiing is scheduled regularly. Check our daily snow report for details.
