This coming week’s weather is looking pretty snowy – Metservice’s ski report is predicting the snow to keep coming until at least Monday. There will be some clear spots so come up to get some amazing powder turns! The snow is gooorgeous & soft so it’s the best kind to learn to ski or snowboard on – plus you get to stay warm & dry with our awesome Learner Conveyor tunnel!
