    Wednesday night is always STAKE NIGHT.
    Interesting to think that anything above 2k (BC) may have seen over a foot since Tuesday night.

    Some of the pictures and cams are starting to remind of what the 1990, 91 and 92 seasons looked like, my first three years skiing. One more good dump before the spring thaw really cranks (if we are that lucky) and we might just about be there in the Snowies at least.

    What about BOM daytime temp forecast for Perisher next week? Will night time snow making compensate for high daytime temps? Or will there be much net snow loss, do you think?
