show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 5:47am Wednesday 19 Sep 2018 - Hope everyone is hungry this week because we've got a big ol'... feast of fun for ya'll! Start it off with the gear shuttle that's running at 9am from the car park, then get into the main course of spring conditions under sunny skies. A little firm at first, but starting to soften in the sun as the day goes by. Top it off with a beer or two on the deck, listening to some tunes. Now that sounds like a tasty treat to me! Om nom nom nom! And it doesn't end there because we've got more planned later in the week as well. Night skiing Friday is on! Come get in on the last night skiing event of the season followed by a beach party weekend. Bring your best beach apparel and get in some activities to get yourself ready for summer which is just on the horizon. More details to follow but it's sure to be a great time! We're still looking for a musical act for the weekend, so if anyone is keen to play some live music this weekend for free skiing and accom, then contact us on FB or The Tram is still down, so bring your tramping boots for an invigorating walk up the beech forest to the ticket office. The access tow is a little tricky, so only experienced rope tow users are recommended to tackle it.
