COUNTDOWN - 10 days to go!

26/09/2014 9:45am

The final week of the ski season next week is looking great - we have amazing conditions on all groomed runs including the intermediate and beginner’s area. The best runs on the upper mountain are Sundance, McNulty’s Track and Bluff Face, all these runs are simply magic.

The weather this week was remarkable - we had the coldest day of the season on Monday followed by the warmest on Tuesday, with balmy weather ever since. It looks like we may get a nice top-up of snow on Saturday night, setting the hill up for a great Sunday and the final week.

The expected snowfall is perfect timing for the school holidays, guaranteeing ideal learning conditions on the lower mountain with plenty of scope for seasoned skiers and riders further up. It is a great opportunity for season pass holders to add a few more days to their season tally.

With ten days left in the season, we are pretty excited about the quality of snow we can offer you - along with all the usual facilities on the hill - great coffee, friendly café ambience, skilled instruction and good quality gear to hire.

Skiers - if you have ever contemplated snowboarding, grab a board and a lesson - get a mate to take a photo and send it in to us, we love to post your photos of your day at Porters on our website.
