Our Spring Schedule

We still have lots of snow - in fact we've had more falls in the last 10 days than we've had all season so we're planning to stay open until Labour weekend (23-25th October) weather/snow and patronage permitting.

The Spring Plan

We hope to be open for week days and weekends until October 14th and then weekends thereafter, subject to bookings and weather/snow conditions.

Here's the plan - ski or board by day and relax in the lodges by night! You can also watch the Rugby World Cup matches on our widescreen TV.


The Weeks

From now until October 14th (end of the first week of the school hols) the ski area will be open and on-mountain accommodation will be available.

However, we can only open during the weeks of October 3-7 and Octover 10-14th if we get enough patronage. Bookings for those two weeks must be made by September 30th.

First week of the October School Holidays (October 10-14th)

We will need at least 15 people booked in the Catered or Backpacker acommodation options (or a mixture of both) for the week to proceed. Bookings for this week must be made by September 30th.

Don't worry if the snow goes and we can't run the week you will be reimbursed. See more information about our cancellation policy below.

The days are warm and relaxing at this time of year. Plenty of time for riding as well as lazing on the deck of Palmer Lodge. Remember to bring something for the BBQ. Get a group together and make the most of the last few weeks at Broken River!
