    We're here for a good time not a long time, so gimme some live obs in the date range 12-15th. NB. impending new system (16/17th) can be discussed HERE, until then.

    She's anomalously warm in the alps for a spring night. Near-on +1C for Thredbo TS right now.

    Looks like a bit of cloud clearing on the Himawari8, so temps should plateau now, at elevation:

    Hotham managed to get a decent freeze last night. Only the usual north facing runs which cop it have managed to soften up.

    Spring in full effect at Buller. Coverage is pretty good. Won’t last long though.

    Your photo looks like it's taken below Grimus load, so good coverage for ~1550m ASL considering it's Northside.

    Correct, photo taken from bottom of Bonza so quite low on the North side. Coverage is very good but won’t last long

    I was surprised at the loss of snow on SCV Hut Run even since Tuesday.

    Southside is stacked.

    There was a light south/sw breeze today that kept some of the southern aspects a bit firm, light also got a bit flat at 1:30

    Correct, south side didn’t fully soften up. I left about 3 and was still pretty firm in some places.
    Had some great runs in Wombat trees, Bull Run bowl, even lower men’s and Women’s Dowhill were solid

    SW Victoria has high-based storms pinging away on the radar right now...
