The white stuff is coating the hills as we speak.  We are amping for this season and looking forward to skiing with all of you again.

Craigieburn celebrated their 60th birthday in style and will be again offering some of the best terrain in New Zealand this Winter.  Broken River’s new Pistenbully groomer is a welcome addition and will help with the beginner and intermediate areas and the sunniest deck in the range has been extended so the famous BR lager will have never tasted so sweet.  After three years of building the Mt Olympus hut is finished and was well worth the wait – definitely a pleasurable stay for all skiers this Winter.

Current proposed opening days for 2014:

Broken River:  21st June

Craigieburn:  5th July

Mt Olympus:  5th July


We will continue to be offering day trips from Methven and have several awesome SNOWHUNTS already locked and loaded.  Mark and Sloppy have new beasts to get you up the fields in safety and comfort.

Our snow and weather forecasts will kick off on opening day of the first club field, which is currently scheduled for the 21st of June 2014.  As always this will include our expert opinion after coordination with snow safety officers in the area, various weather forecasters and the mountain safety council.  If you are interested in receiving these, let us know and we will add you to our mailing list.

Season is nearly upon us.  Wax up those planks and boards and walk around town wearing in your boots looking forward to the season.
