    Splendid morning at Buller. No wind and no people. The cynics might also say no snow!

    Plenty of cover at Thredbo, but you can't ski on most of it. A couple of cm of fresh will make a big difference - 20cm will transform the place. Wind-packed powder on the Bluff, anyone?

    +2.6c at Mount William. Easily enough for snow to 1400m in Vic, even without upper level support.

    At Buller. Evidence of the lightest of dustings (less than 1cm overnight). Then this morning a 20 minute fair snow shower with large flakes. I wouldn't call it heavy, but nor would I call it light. No rain.

    Yesterday afternoon around 4.00 also had the lightest of dustings for a few minutes while on the summit chair, however it was short lived and a very light fall - hardly noticeable.
