    Taken from the Falls creek insta:


    Winter definitely making its presence felt today. All the cams are looking lovely and white, and in Melbourne there is that unmistakable chill in the air that says - snow

    Looks like 10-15cm there.

    Baw Baw, looking lovely under a cover of fresh white:


    And a group at Dinner Plain looking like it’s their first time in the snow.

    Of course. Be indiciative of what's settled in Heavenly Valley though given it's leeward aspect and topography.

    I observe:

    1. Light sleet at Moonbah 1100 ASL

    2. Snow sticking at the park entry on Kosi Rd.

    3. 4WD and or chains from Wilson’s. Lots of traffic early on as well.

    4. Deep snow on road at Perisher. Noted one car with chains “bogged” on the tar!!!

    5. Cold. Minus 5. Steady light snow. About 20 cms on the ground.

    6. PV open in May... (guess).

    Fair but the avg should be taken not on the loading. Roundshot cam showing a lot of grass etc. near top of Windex etc. Looks on par with other resorts IMO

    sometimes you just score a direct hit and sometimes you don't. Everyone looks to do nicely out of this for a few days though with plenty of snowmaking to top up and have lifts spinning for opening weekend (not that that is anything but a gimmick for the partying punters).

    Disclaimer: I haven't looked it up but I doubt this is an official report, probably wont even do an official report. It's a social media hype post, nothing more.
