Weather & Road Conditions 17th July 2018

17-07-2018 :

Mostly sunny. Areas of morning frost. Very high (90%) chance of showers in the west, slight (30%) chance elsewhere. Snow falling above 1200 metres. The chance of a thunderstorm in the west late this afternoon and evening. Winds north-westerly 30 to 45 km/h turning westerly 25 to 40 km/h in the late evening.


Cloud is increasing this morning and bringing with it the hope of snowfall becoming more likely this afternoon and overnight.  A rugging up kinda day with really strong winds developing ahead of the expected cold front.  All lifts are open but prepare for the chairlift to go on wind-hold.


A cold front is on the way and with that approaching, winds will start to pick up during the day and cloud cover will increase.  Keeping all fingers and toes crossed for a decent top up.  As long as you rug up today there will be a bunch of groomed runs open and more challenging off-piste if you prefer.  44 lifts are set to open but expect wind holds.


It will be a super day of carving as the temps are a bit milder so the snow cover is not too firm on the groomed slopes.  There are strong winds about up high which have blown the snow about into fun stashes so rug up to enjoy those.  Winds are lighter down in the village so beginners won’t get so wind-blown on Friday Flat and again the cover will be nice and forgiving for the L-Platers.  13 lifts spinning.


It’s partly cloudy this morning and the cloud cover is expected to increase during the day as another cold front rolls in.  The snow cover is in good shape and is spread across the whole resort.  With all lifts open you can access every trail.  The toboggan / tubing area has had a groom and is ready for families.

Cross Country

Winds are moderate to strong today and the cover is good but thinning.  Hopefully a few cms over the next few days will improve things.
