Road Conditions


Further Road Information

The Bruce Road is CLOSED due to heavy snow and zero visibility. For any Club Members wanting to leave the mountain today you will need to be escorted down the road. We plan to do this on the hour between 10am & 2pm. If you can get you vehicle out, warmed up and please wait in the bus park at the top of the road which will be the departure point for each convoy. Do not try and drive down the road on your own as there is heavy machinery operating in areas where there is zero visibility.

More information

The mountain is now CLOSED for the day due to blizzard conditions. For any Club Members on the mountain the avalanche risk is high. So we would advise that moving around outside of the club today is not advisable. For those that absolutely have to leave the mountain today we would also advise to stay off the loaded slopes - that being the freshly loaded slopes. Stay on Ridge lines where possible and travel in groups.

Mountain Products and Services

Kick start your day with something from our extensive and delicious breakfast menu at Lorenz's Bar & Café. Its a great day for some retail therapy in our newly re-vamped Vertical retail store.
