    Light snow at Buller, official report hasn't updated the 24h snowfall which is annoying, next door car looking buried again after the hair dryer cleared it off a bit.

    Bluebird morning at PV with light snow rolling in from around 1130.

    Snow condition is pretty good but that waist deep POW has eluded me again.

    Guthega the pick for mine today. Pretty busy everywhere.

    Was watching the High Noon cam and was surprised just how quickly it turned from blue sky/sun to snow.

    Been a very solid day of skiing at Buller. Light dry snow showers on and off. I reckon 10-15cm overnight, filled in my footprints from yesterday.

    There’s a cap cloud clung to the Main Range. Been there all day. Had graupel on and off all day at Guthega, and right down to Below Wilson Valley as of an hour ago.

    Nil significant winds which is allowing it to dry and then replensh itself with showers as the wind moderates.

    Yeah, have to agree JB, great snow today. Not the deepest but nice and dry. Some awesome runs early on.

    And both I and the snow also stayed dry all day - a Buller collectors item! Lightly snowing here still as well.

    Wait are you talking about lightly snowing down at Sawmill? If so, you got any intel on the chain situation?

    It was snowing lightly at the Ski Tube when we left at around 1530 too. Funny enough it was 4.5 degrees according to the temp sensor on the car, and the light snow continued down to around Bimblegumbie. It was obviously coming out of the cap cloud as there were no other clouds in sight.

    I also observed that the snow condition improved throughout the day. Some nice freshies in the morning but a little heavy turning to nice dry firm packed as the day progressed.
