We are at the mercy of the elements, and the climatic effects of being atop the North Island’s peak, unprotected from any direction, adding a sense of drama but also magic to our slopes.
Our terrain is naturally volcanic, making it vast and diverse, and better flowing. Made by nature, enhanced by our expert team. This guarantees variety, creativity, and excitement.
While some days are gnarlier than others, we often arrive to crisp, bluebird days, and elusive “spring corn” – soft and forgiving – as the sun warms the slopes over the day.
We traditionally see a base of upwards of 1m from August, with snow filling the gullies and rocky crevasses, making for some of the best free ride terrain in the Southern Hemisphere.
Come prepared for our conditions and plan ahead and you will experience its magic.
