    Cold air seems to be ahead of the moisture by a good few hours.

    As you rightfully pointed out it’s sliding SE, so you’ll be wanting to obs somewhere In the NW upstream trajectory for it to be any reasonable indicator for Buller. Cape Otway was good for maybe King Island.;)

    BTW Melbourne outer subs still got a soaking from the band as obs earlier this morning... Avalon has picked up 5mm since 2:30am

    Calmish at Perisher Village too. And sunny, but with some fairly dark clouds around.

    All lifts expected.

    Calm before the storm or are we good (for wind I mean, I know its going to chuck it down later)?

    Pretty much.

    Little Miss Fartypants decided to sleep really well this morning so we went with it, not racing out there, will only get better.

    Good flakes coming down. Bull Run opened on time which is a good sign.

    No prefrontal signs throughout the resorts yet. Cold air looks to be paired nicely with the moisture.

    Temp has drop considerably in the Thredbo Valley, in the last hour. Dark skies above the MR. Snow is not far away now.

    Radar looks to shows light high level precip over the range.

    Definitely feeling colder at Perisher. Light is pretty flat (even with the Aldi goggles) and the weather is closing in but no precip yet.

    Howling blizzard at the top but stll ABOM and the other high lifts turn. Amazing what they can open on weekends that gets mysteriously closed on lesser winds in the week!

    Snowing decent flakes consistently all morning but pretty crusty underneath in places. Some fun to be had on the right runs though. Koflers is heaving!

    Just went out for a couple of runs, sadly the very least convenient time for a snowfall to begin is 8am on a Saturday.

    Ever increasing dust on a serious crust, the skiing will definitely improve but right now inside is the place to be.

    I also think the wind last night affected how much grooming was done, quite rightly due to OH&S which is adding to the tricky conditions.

    As others have said has now started snowing lightly at the bottom of Mount Perisher. No prefrontal means no Lake Perisher this time :(

    Yep, not much grooming done.
    Lots of variable, but still finding some decent sections Bull run / Fed way for some nice turns.
    Firm, but not icy and no trouble holding an edge.
