Hanmer Springs

show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 10:30am Monday 10 Sep 2018 - This season was a disappointing one for us, with Mother Nature... refusing us the snow we needed in the right places. We celebrated wins with our short lived opening for the School Holidays and a few club only days in September and the ongoing growth and support of our fantastic membership base and volunteer committee. You win some, you lose some, but the wild west of club run ski area's in New Zealand mean there are not guarantees so you may as well enjoy the ride! Please note that if you purchased any passes at the UCSA Snow Sale, pop them somewhere safe as, regardless of possible opening days this season, we will be honouring them for 2019. Our bad luck has been your bad luck too.
