In case you missed our Facebook post, yes Big Red Cats did get snow on the night of 2 September!  

Kieren and Kauri are up there nearly every day cutting new runs and on the morning of the 3rd they were excited to report the first snow of the season!

The bookings have been coming in pretty steadily now - most years, they really pick up right after Labour Day, when the kids are back in school and there's a morning chill in the air - but if you beat the rush, you can even get some coveted February spots:


Just check out the schedule and book online via the website - or if you'd like a package including lodging, send me an email.

More news to come later this week - in the meantime, here is the latest video from the end of last season:
