    Clear stuff turned to white fluffy stuff as temps dropped from 5.2 to 0.6 degrees here at Island Bend 1330m. Guessing carnage on the roads down from Perisher. Havent heard the snow plough for the Guthega road yet, so perhaps all hands on deck elsewhere?

    Maybe nearly over for a few hours at PV. Charts and radar show another burst around 9pm - which is probably when it will to lower levels.

    meanwhile a very big rocket is set to launch in apx 30 mins

    Pretty cold day at Hotham with the wind chill , but other than the occasional empty chair seat flipping on Orchard due to the wind, they kept most of the lifts open. Summit closed for a bit during the day. Now very foggy and kind of damp squid weather but all white stuff today, but not as dry as Tuesday or Wednesday. The past week has been Gotham at its best ! Here’s a
    Shot of lunch weather.

    I measured 15cm fresh @1850m Mt Perisher when I left at 4pm. SNowed very hard all afternoon.

    I also observe it took me 2h 40m to drive the 30km from perisher to Jindy due to the carnage on the road

    Interesting day, drove up morning bc worked too late, but met a classic GAR debacle that resulted in sitting in car in whiteout for an hour. Don’t get why GAR is increasingly challenging for mortals, it seemed to work better back in the 70s and 80s. Some very awesome snow once out and about, with good stashes hidden in the weather. Then a v pleasant evening XC in fresh snow DP picturesque wonder w dog

    Of course it is. If you were skiing this afternoon or last Wednesday regardless of state or ski resort, you would have been skiing fresh powder. What's not to love?

    Snowed non-stop at Thredbo today, getting steadily heavier as the day went on. No wind to speak of until mid-afternoon except at the top. No clear stuff at all, although the snow was quite wet - which was good, as it stuck to all the icy bits from yesterday. Just dumped all afternoon. Currently dumping in the village

    Beautiful evening up at Falls Creek. Been snowing solidly since we arrived at 2pm today. They were fitting chains from about 15km down from the main area.

    Enjoy the snow everyone!
