Great Snow Conditions

We have excellent conditions this week with packed powder over the whole mountain. Skiing on Sunny Peak in the middle of the day has been fun. The shady faces of Happy Valley and the Rugby Tow have lovely sugary snow.

Conditions are firmer down on the Access Tow but you only need to ski or board that once per day.

The Telemark Week is progressing well with everyone making great improvements to their skiing. Don't forget the R & R Sport Freeheel Fun Weekend this coming weekend August 6th and 7th. If you'd like to give telemarking a go we do have some telemark gear available to use up at Palmer Lodge. We will also be offering lessons for all skill levels.
