    Perisher reporting 6cm of snow in the last 24 hours. Not 5cm, not 10cm but 6cm!

    So surprised I took a screenshot. Evidence below @Vermillion :)

    A nice 5cm or so on a breakable crust (if you tried to hit it) above about 1700 at dhg. Quite a nice day indeed.

    Rather be at the snow, but work down in Mt Martha on PPB goes alright today too.

    Wow, the Bay looks super glassy.
    It's the same in the city. There's a fair bit of smog hanging around in the still air - like big smudges hanging low in the sky.

    I'll agree with those photos. Perfect blue bird before a hopeful full reset.
