    Seems like the snow cam at Hotham from White Crystal looking towards the Summit has been conveniently malfunctioning since Sunday morning when it was pea-soup.

    Is it a convenient co-incidence or are Hotham just too embarrassed at the state of the Summit to let images be readily seen?

    That camrea is Owned and operated by Nick Fletcher, an appartment owner in white crystal ... it has nothing to do with the ski company whatsoever, and it is more than likely Nick has left for the season and simply switched off the electricity! Or it might have broken down, or the ADSL connection is playing up ... but it is not a conspiracy :rolleyes:

    Geez they've lost alot of snow since I last skiied there on Thurs. With all that warm sun last week it was only going to take one rain event to totally screw the cover up. Its more or less all over.

    DinnerPlainSkier - my problem, absolutely nothing to do with Lift Co or even Nick.

    So feel free to abuse me, it is all my conspiracy so put away your x-files soundtrack for another day.

    I would have thought the Dr Who soundtrack would have been more appropriate
