    25th still looking like the best totals in this date range with NSW resorts to do well and get some much needed repair work after Friday's damage (Looks to be predominantly coming from the W/NW direction).

    Wind scarring from Saturday didnt help much either. 1st run down Kamo was decent , 2nd run was basically ice with a bit of sugar on top. Noticed lots of scarring on my way round today.

    Perisher / Thredbo should see 20-30cm, Falls / Hotham, perhaps 20cm, Buller 15-20cm?

    Yep, the incoming front is a thing of beauty and there is a pile of speckled lining up behind it so this should mean a sustained period of continuous falls.

    It also has the NW Slider happening with the initial front.

    Hindsight's a wonderful thing, but I was pretty happy with how this played out 5-7 days in advance (I put this together last Monday) - certainly more rain than anyone anticipated or hoped for...

    I'm thinking slightly higher than last night, perhaps 30-35cm Perisher & Thredbo, Falls and Hotham 20-25cm and Buller 20cm
