Catching some freshies on the Spring Run.

Looking up the Access Chairlift past the old office, previously ski hire upstairs and the original cafe downstairs!

Looking up the Main Basin.

View down onto the Plateau from the Spring Run.

Narrow Main Basin through Island Rock Gully - when the run is wide here the snow surface would be above your head presently!

After 2 days and a night of shoving snow once things dried out from the biblical rainfall on Monday, lift served snowsports resummed on Thursday with the Cliffhanger Chair running for access to the Main Basin T-bar.

The upper Main Basin is reasonably wide, but with low tide snow cover, the Main Basin becomes confined between the narrow rock walls of Island Rock Gully. Due to the volume of water on Monday undercutting the Haggis Trap, the only route back to the T-bar is cut skiers right on the dozed track into Ski Tow Gully. This means the run is narrower and steeper than usual and should be treated as a fairly tricky red run rather than the marked blue.

there is sufficient snow for novices under instruction with ski school to be up the hill on snow, but at present there is a lack of progression terrain.

The Sledge Park at the Plateau Cafe is great shape and sledging is complimentary with a chairlift ticket. It is advised to be on the Access Chair no later than 2.45pm to get a reasonable period of time on the sledging slope.

For mountain disc golf allow at least an hour for individuals or adult groups, 90 minutes for family groups to complete a round and return to the Access Chair.
