Mt Lyford

show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 11:22am Monday 17 Jun 2019 - We have a good base for the season after a early snow storm and... are waiting for a top up hopefully coming this weekend. We are gearing up for the Winter Season and cant wait! New to this year the Rock Section has been lowered and widened. The road is looking great and has come up beautifully after the grader and tractor have worked from top to bottom. We also have purchased another snow groomer this year a classic PB270. We have great ski staff and instructors on their way and will soon have the lifts ready to spin! New snow tubes have also been purchased for those who like to slide sitting down! The team looks forward to seeing you soon on the mountain!
