    Snow eased up at Perisher about 40 minutes ago. I’d say 5cms accumulation maybe, in non wind affected spots. Wind also eased up at about 1pm and many of the crowds vanished.... smiggins has actually been skiing nicely since lunch time! Some really interesting lines in the trees there with few other people around.

    Whole ground gets done but northern side that is shadowed by Olympic and members get extra dose. As do high traffic areas.

    I observe no time to post earlier in the day because powder. I observed about 50cms according to my polometer and that tracks were getting filled in rapidly

    I observed 3 hours of phenomenal this morning. I observe that I might be stuck here for longer than I planned, and tomorrow I might just take the advice of others above, ie, go back out skiing, leave vehicle for 2 months. I also observe Mr and Mrs Snowman outside my window at Buller, have sustained significant frostbite since yesterday

    That was me this afternoon (not actually me) it took a good 45 mins to extricate my car. Main problem was the packed powder underneath it. Three days of intense NWester packed it in there.

    It's hosing it down in Sawmill too. But the clear variety obviously. Kind of keen for it to dry up now the temps have risen.

    BOM radar shows more precipitation heading for the majors. I wonder if this system has anything significant left? Especially given warming temps. Gotta say i'm looking forward to a bluebird day tomorrow (hopefully).

    Ok. It was so good today out, that I don’t have any mid run photos. Too good to stop. Not super light powder but not as heavy as we get use to in Oz. Cold temps certainly helped but by a late lunchtime, temps had stated to rise and the best clean sheets of powder were pretty much tracked out. By me !!! Hotham has been at its best the past three days. Looks like the sun will come out 2mo but it will be warmer. At least we will be able to see. Up top, the light and wind have been super poor biting. But the rewards were in the fill zones or where the N slopes caught the snow. One tree. Spargos. Mary’s. The Chute ! All £€]€#€€} Great. Here are some shots around Hotham village this arvo. That front door photo of our lodge shows how much has fallen. That access is out of action !

    This snow fall could be bigger than that of 2017...…..For all the days I have XC skied on slush , slop and boiler plate this season I think this dump will make up for it.

    A short trip to Mt. Wills yesterday. Snow was dry but not very dense. Followed the snow plough up as it pushed about 20cm (average) off the highway but it would have been passable without it as long as you were first to cut the tracks and had a high clearance 4wd. Good falls down to about 1200m but was snowing at 950m and stuck in the trees. Skis on from the Highway but finding a place to park would be hard if not in a real 4wd.

    It's back...


    It's going to be pretty crispy for a while with the very damp finish to the day and those overnight lows I imagine.
