Yes it is. But this is no base builder. Will all be gone unless this week's system comes off.
Nice shot Tad! Is that yours or from a web cam somewhere?
i wish it was mine. Its from the perisher site.
that looks too sharp to be a webcam shot.
Indeed... I've seen Friday flat with less snow mid winter!
Actually PB would be chuffed at this... It may prompt them to start snowmaking a bit early and put some man made down over this natural...
Looks like at least 20cm there, so in patches it will last a little while...
have a squizz at the other cams...
..snow making has begun!!
The only snow making that I can see is in the archived shots on the cams that are not operating yet.

I'll be there listening to some great jazz watching the flakes fall and enjoying an odd drink or two
- great quality snow
- about 20cms fell and 10cms settled in the village
- i'm told about 30cms + up high and absolutly fantastic quality

Tad, I can find the shot on the PB web site but it's only 440 * 330 pixels. The one you've posted is 800 * 600 - how did you get this?
I was wondering if it's possible to get a bigger (1280 * 800) version from somewhere?
I have no idea how I did it... I just grabbed the url from the photo on their webpage and pasted it in here. It was a pleasent suprise to see it grow.
this is the url http://www.perisherblue.com.au/winter/images/today/1147040674.jpg
jeez, Check this out:
looks like a fair amount of accumilation in some parts...
CHarlottes 24mm since 9am!
Sounds like a chunk of ice rimming the beaker, has fallen in... Theres nothing left on the radar loops.
Wet vs dry snow for forming a base in oz is irrelevant. It becomes wet snow in about one day.
OS, wet snow is best because it freezes and sets like concrete. Early season dry snow in many OS ski areas has a problem because it may not go through the freeze/thaw cycle we have here and then remains "fluffy". Fluffy snow blows away with wind and easy to post hole through. Therefore not good basebuilding stuff.
Guaranteed the dry snow that has fallen over the weekend will be crusty, frozen wet stuff by Wednesday. Even so because we are not in Winter yet, it may not survive until the next snowfall.
hmmm, I might take a drive up tomorrow with my son to check out the snow for the first time this season!
what a difference a day makes
Is there any chance that Thredbo's maximum of -3.9C today is some sort of May low maximum record?
No, not quite, according to weatherzone the lowest maximum in May was -6.0Â°C.
According to Weatherzone The Coldest Max was -6, with the coldest min -11
EDIT: Damn, beat me to it! And by quite a bit too, I must be slow
I didn't think the record would be that low in May. Wow. -3.9C is not even close!
I think that record might be from "season 2000's dump of dumps".
Looks like more at Hotham over night and still well below zero. Bottom of Snake Gully looks amazing, looks like it has even had more down there. Still snow in the trees and should get a top up again this afternoon.
Jeez, benches on the hotham cam have some nice accumilation!
