Just when we want to start skiing spring corn we get 2 meters of new snow to low elevations in one week. We have now decided to operate into October to take advantage of the great snow base! and possibly settled weather. It will also be a great month for ski touring so we intend to operate our regular plus custom touring trips into November if conditions permit.

The Canterbury earth quake had a dramatic effect on the mountains by initiating a widespread avalanche cycle. Slopes that skiers would normally not be able to trigger avalanches on were shaken so hard that large slides were initiated! The good news is that we can now ski everywhere with confidence due to the stabilising affect of the avalanche! The other good news is it continues to snow and September is shaping up to be a great month.
September is shaping up to be a great month with more snow forecast to 600 meters over the next few days! Greg Fetterplace’s group of ” Thredbo” skiers had a great time yesterday in the South Ashburton Valley. The shot says it all! Unfortunately no skiing today but with more snow on its way and a long range forecast for settled weather in September it should be a great month.
