    know them feels.
    Saturday looks good though. Decent little top up on the shit tonne of snow that's now coating every aspect of every hill. ~20cm of fluff is all you need at this point.

    Problem with Saturday is according to YR it will snow mainly from 6am to 6pm, means you don't really get freshies as it's continually being skied in.

    yeah. but you've gotta get it when it's falling in Aus. And by afternoon there'll be some good stashes if you know where to look. Sunday be a good BC day.

    Falls and Hotham up to 174 and 168cm ave snow depth. A good chance to surpass the 2m mark by the en of next week, even allowing for some settling and compacting of this new storm snow. What a season this is turning out to be!

    Olympic year coming through with the goods again!
