    Very nice at Buller.
    They have started grooming quite a few black runs, which is an interesting turn for the mountain.
    Expecting cloud later, and hopefully a 5cm topup overnight.

    Mild settled morning in Melb. Spring feels like it will arrive soon...

    Doesn't feel like Melbourne will reach the predicted top of 16 today, still a lot of cloud cover and a light breeze keeping the lid of temps. 13.5c currently...

    Same, absolutely glorious at Thredbo with wind now kicking in and making it even nicer.

    Happy days

    From my perch high above Tumba I see dark clouds forming in the west and they look more like the non snow type than the snow type. Temp quite warm this afternoon at 6c after a chilly -3 overnight.

    I also observe that most pics I see of Buller give me the impression of a soulless wasteland , doesn't really entice me to have a look at it someday. Maybe I am wrong but that's the impression it gives me.

    Well Team Bears could not disagree with that observation....
    U need a trip down to CampCk and a weekend up near Cleve Cole....:thumbs:

    Oops no obs....!!
    it's been cool in the big city of Aust....little if any rain all day in Melb.some periods of sunshine through the higher clouds.Small birds seem to be active ....suggesting Spring and a change in weather pattern from these serial westerlies to higher temps cannot be far away.

    I've been there twice. First no snow, next some snow. But it's a lovely village and the some snow trip gave me a glimpse of a resort with potential.

    Quite windy now, and I would say increasing, in Smiggins. Broken high cloud overhead.

    Light wind in Smiggins. Only 1-2cm of snow overnight on our driveway, and continuing to snow lightly. Road up to Perisher looks shiny under headlights, but I can't see yet whether it is "wet shiny" or "icy shiny".

    I observe It's going to be a 'snow in strange places' kinda day. Breezy with high cloud in the NSW southern highlands.

    Cloud on the mountain in Thredbo. Calm winds and no snow in the village.

    Edit: I take that back, a dusting in the village.

    Dumping in PV now and the wind has arrived with it. Packing like mad to get out of ski tube car park without chains...

    Be a great day on the hill for those that brace the weather
