Pipelines Ski Report September 22, 2017

Pipelines Ski Report this week is welcoming Spring... it feels like it's finally here!

It finally feels like Spring! We've had a couple of days of beautiful blue skies & spring snow conditions... the mountain looks great & it's ready for some long sunshiny days. Don't forget to flick your clocks forward an hour this weekend, you don't want to miss an hour of skiing or snowboarding this Sunday for sleeping in!

Last weekend was one for the books with the Monster Energy Jossi Wells Invitational going off in close to perfect conditions on Saturday, after we had to push it back a day because of the weather! Check out the full video report:

Weather

It could be a bit of a soggy start to the coming week, with precipitation forecast on & off from Sunday night through till Wednesday at this stage. There could be a wee dusting of snow for a couple of days there (yes we know, after we said Spring was here...) so might still be a chance for a couple of fresh turns before the season is done!

Events

This weekend we're hosting the New Zealand Youth Series ski racing – it's a pinnacle event on the junior & children's race calendar & we're stoked to see them all take on the Super G, Giant Slalom & Slalom courses.

Next weekend it's time for all the snowboarders to dust off their retro boards & hunt down their best costume... the Airtime Minipipe World Champs are back for the fifth year! It's free to enter; stay up to date with the latest at bit.ly/MiniPipe


Parks

The Parks crew did a beeeautiful job of the Big Air for the Jossi Wells Invitational! Now they're having a play around with the features in Stag Lane & Antlers Alley – they rebuilt the lower line & it's looking sweet! Spring park laps are on...
