Snow Reporter Comments

Lift facilities here at Whakapapa will OPEN from 9am. There will be a slight delay on the Rangatira & Waterfall Express Chairs for de-icing & avalanche control work. All other upper mountain facilities are ON HOLD for strong winds & poor visibility. This will be constantly assessed and we will have regular updates on the hour. The West Ridge Chair will be CLOSED for the day due to poor weather.
