Weather Conditions

0°C, Mixed

Do not despair! This morning's wintry mix has included freezing rain, rain, and a promising dusting of very wet and heavy snow. This is a complex front, and current models are projecting that temps will drop toward the evening today and the precipitation will be changing to heavier and colder snow tonight! We expect to do quite well out of this storm overnight and tomorrow- so keep an eye on the webcam and snow report so you can plan to be up here skiing the new stuff when it clears!

Road Conditions & Traffic

Chains all vehicles

Road Open - Chains required to be fit to all vehicles. A mix of rain, freezing rain, and snow has made for to very slippery conditions on the road. Please ensure you have your headlights ON and use extra caution when driving against the flow (down in the morning or up in the afternoon) as there are a few tight corners. Those coming up today please be aware of the weather forecast and be prepared for the possibility that you could be snowed in up here until we are able to clear our road/until the pass is open.

Snow Conditions

Average depth of 55cm

Today we are closed. Rain overnight and the forecast for heavy rain throughout the day. Sub-optimal skiing and riding conditions and the need to preserve our base have prompted us to close for today.
