What’s happening today

Gate 6 at Moiwa ski ground is now open and would well be worth riding. And as there was no snow in the last 24 hours the groomers should be in perfect condition.

This evening there is an Island Vibes night at Blo Blo that’s located just below the Alpen Hotel. Sould and dub will be playing and cocktails will be served.

Glen Claydon & Dr. Ned Buckley are on their way up Mt. Yotei…

The gap in the snow fall and some clear weather today had Glen and Ned fired up yesterday afternoon and this morning at 6am they started hiking up Mt. Yotei. Here are some pictures Glen beamed back from his phone.
