    I guess the odd day of work here or there won't hurt you.

    Bar some massive rain event and plus some top ups, I’d imagine I would be up for much of the last week of the season. And they may extend it too. September could be big.

    What's your definition of the last week of the season (i.e. the date range)?

    The last week lifts run I meant. Week preceding the 29th of September.
    Obviously the BC season is just getting started then.

    Just got back to Melb, was snowing quite hard driving down the mountain, down to about 1300m, was rainy on the road until about Bonnie Doon but pretty clear thereafter.

    AWS says 12mm so maybe more up higher?

    Snowing at Moonbah 1100 ASL. Nice flakes falling and no wind at all for a change!

    Looks like a few cms at PV so far.

    Satellite images are nice - they show the SW flow pretty clearly. Was expecting to see more east in it.

    Good cold temps at thredbo and perisher but only 1.8mm of precip registered so far.

    This system snuck up with some quite cold temps. Wasn't expecting that. Here is 24 hr temperature profile for Selwyn. Lots of snowmaking going on. Gonna cop a flogging temp wise this week, so all top ups welcome.
