1.75 m of snow in the last week!

After more than 1.75 metres of snow in the last week the skies have finally cleared. What a start to the 2011 winter season. Incredible.

The staff are up now up on the field with the challenging task of digging out all the tows and undertaking snow control work. Ropes will have to be dug out and pulleys raised. Both are well buried under the snow - with drifts of more than 2.3 metres in places due to the strong westerly system we've been experiencing over the last week. Thanks guys for all your hard work. We very much appreciate it.

2011 winter season here we come!
