A fine and cold day ahead us on the maunga. Great to see snow guns firing. The road is currently RESTRICTED to chains or 4WDs. Please take care when driving up the road. The Sky Waka Gondola, snow sledding, and cafeteria options will OPEN from 10am. The forecast is for fine weather for the next few days, followed by some snow later in the week. The snow received earlier in the month is a great start and helps build the base and start filling the gullies on the upper mountain. Skiing and riding are still projected to start on Matariki weekend in Happy Valley and as we receive and make more snow will progress to the upper mountain and Valley T around mid-July. We will keep you updated here on our snow base and levels alongside trail building as we receive & make further snow.

Bruce Road: OPEN
Chains or 4WD
Restriction currently place on the Bruce. CHAINS or 4WDs until further notice.
