which is rather the point... that one image with what was likely the deepest depth on the mountain to start with obviously isn't representative. Be a lot of holes to fill in at a lot of mountains.
Thats true.
However the bottom of Mt P looks ok too.

As does Guthega.

Anyways. I'll get told off soon

and @mick chopps right to the point that good marketing covers many sins... and that we have a great snow making program that addresses the shite systems we will always have. Well particularly with Perri and The BO... observe the cams and they are fantastic given the past day.

Windy corner is well, windy. Alternating between graupel, clear snow and nothing. Temp still marginal but I have everything crossed. Report back from heathy spur of pea sized hail and blasting wind. Wintry mix just starting at windy.

Obs from around Mt P at PV.

1. Firstly, the snowpack above 1850 ASL has survived that moisture onslaught amazingly well. The snowpack was in good shape prior and seems to have “absorbed” a lot of the moisture. Just IMO.

2. The 2 snowfalls prior to the storm 40 cms and 5 cms definitely helped.

3. The snowpack has been smoothed out and now has around 3 cms of fresh grauple on it - as at 10:30 today.

4. The “refreeze” of the base has kicked in. Could feel it underfoot up high when skiing off piste.

The upcoming forecasted new snow will “heal” any gaps etc if the totals are close to the forecast. IMO.

At low elevations, along Kosi Rd (say down to 1400 ASL) there’s significant snow loss. But it does not matter really.

Peri Creek circa 8:30.

Buller revolting all day. Snowed for about 30 seconds at one point. Relentless drizzle otherwise. Had a mate insist on coming up to use his day ticket. Forced me to ski 830-3pm in the rain. Mountain has taken some damage today for sure. On the plus side, no lift lines!

Hotham has had a bit of snow. I think they are fitting chains to all wehicles on the road to Bright. I came across a buss in front of central that was waiting for the snow plough to follow down.
At the top its all good but down at bottom of Heavenly its fairly wet snow. Did 2 runs with the family and we were all soaking wet. Probably had around 1cm on the car in 2h. Heavy wet snow below the road. Called it quits after 2 runs.

Dinner plain on the other hand has had snow barely settle on the ground.

Oof, was planning on going up next week but might skip it and hope for a decent snowfall some time soon.

A very long way from everybody
The wind eased at IB this morning so I put the awning back up so I could use the fridge, stove etc. again. Beaudy! Went to Jindabyne for most of the day & came back to find it back to raging gale & half the awning on the ground. I've been here since Sunday and have skied once. Not happy am I. Might go up tomorrow afternoon despite the melee - I'll just snarl at anyone who gets in my way.
