    Snow getting blown in here at East Jindabyne, very windy. Fingers crossed we wake up to snow on the ground.

    If that Snow Stake tops 50 cents by tomorrow 9am, I'll buy a Perisher season pass for next year, 'cause this obs cam is off the hook.

    It’s so good.
    Bet that every major resort will have one in 2 years time.

    Live snow cams are the future.
    Said it before... People tried to convince me Buller has them but no... Not live, like this.
    It's resort accountability & hype at it's finest.

    More headlight straw near Jindy airport and moon visible as well. Light snow falling when I arrived at my diggs. Still windy but seems to have eased a bit with just the odd gust having any real intensity

    Absolutely pouring here in SE Melb subs.
    Thinking this bodes well for Buller. Perhaps tonight is the night for 'her'?
