The modelling has gone ape shite for Mt. Stirling for Sunday and Monday at 1700 M. It predicts, at present , 26 cm.s of snow above 1700 M.It predicts 10 cm of snow for 1550 M. i.e . King Spur hut.

Falls Ck., Hot Ham and the automated modelling look quite similar.

AXS-R has been particularly bullish on precip totals for the last month or two.
It looks to me BoM's WATL siding with OCF/EC:

Tomorrow AM 5-11am holds the most promise for particular heavy falls with the passing of the trough and secondary front.

Tuesday looks to be a non-event for NSW.

Short duration says to me accumulations in the 15-20cm range for Main Range above 1600m are about right IMO.

A lot of low-level stuff in the Bight, with very little depth indicative of low PW figures IMO:

The automated modelling is decreasing the expected snow fall for Mt.Baw Baw. What was 10 cm is now a very marginal 7 cm..
Hot Ham looks like the pick of out of season rock hopper locations , IF this snow fall bearing low pressure weather system actually delivers.

My other half is cruising down the NSW coast from Sydney tonight with gale warnings in place. Tomorrow’s scheduled crossing of Bass Strait has been cancelled and they’re stopping in Eden instead. Would have been an entertaining trip I reckon.

Won't happen.
You can already see Buller AWS (1700m) is marginal @ +0.3C with 10mm fallen with just a dusting in the village.
Too marginal for Buffalo.
Yes, You are right and I can only dream on...… I think XC skiing on 30 cm of Powder snow at Baw Baw on 9/11/19 was excellent but won't happen again in a hurry, nor the heavy snowfall at the end of May 2019 that made Lake Mountain totally skiable.

It’s melting quick but there’s been a good amount up high. The alpine in NSW has had a decent snowfall. Existent drifts prior to this event should be good once it clears.

Currently it seems that the weather is contracting to the peaks.
