    Yes I'd say so, though I don't know this area nearly as well as I'd like to

    Couple of pics at Sawpit early this morning. Nothing unusual about snow on the trees (and there was a decent cover on them due to lack of wind) but look at the road surface.....

    All that radiated stored heat took care of the road. Even the RMS reps gave up on the silly notion that chains were required :rolleyes:.

    At PV it was dust on crust, mizzle and very poor visibility. Did manage a few runs off piste - that was ok when you could see. Albeit heavish snow IMO.

    It was pointing out the skiable chute that formed after the landslip a couple of years ago. Not quite enough cover... :)

    I'll allow that! I'm from Canberra originally and take my kids there every year for Christma and when we drive to Pine Island for swimming or Corin Forest for mountain sledding they call it "scar mountain"! Skiable chute LOL btw. Be a hell of a run!

    1. Observed the last lot of rain and snow has left plenty at higher levels. Skiable most everywhere today but need to be on it early.



    2. Spencer’s where the melt is well underway-but this pic not where they do the readings.
