    usually needs 1m spencers to open?[/QUOTE]

    We skied Interceptor all arvo. Cover was much better than I expected and conditions were very good. Fresh snow up to 40cm in places, average around 25cm, fresh tracks could be found in the trees up til closing, quite dry and easy skiing. Light snow all day, I would estimate no more than 1 cm up to 5pm. The bom aws at Perisher is wack. When we left it felt like more snow was coming.

    Thredbo for me. Temp warmed up this afternon turning lower part of mountain below mid station into slop. Was still some nice snow falling up high late arvo.

    Bugger all snow at friday flat . At least 30cm mid mountain. Was a good 50cm in GCB but must have fallen on nothing because it was not filled in.

    Couple of nice runs in stanleys area after lunch.

    In the BC east of Falls, snow level seemed to be 1000m. Skis on around 1300m but only around 10cm of fresh. 1700m had about 30cm of fresh but it was sticky and slow most of the way. Not a great deal happened through the day. Did not even need wet weather gear. Wind was just nice enough to keep you cool when stopped and not too hot on the uphill.

    No dodgy readings like Spencer's Ck...and subsequent histogram analysis this snow Cam has state of the art measuring equipment...and user friendly systems for rapid interpretation of data....also readily recognised standards in depth analysis.

    I don't know what's so bad about Spencer's Creek? It's great for analysis of the season as a whole.

    It's useful.
    What would bemore useful is an average of several measurements taken every day across the NSW resorts.
    Cos that's how you measure snow in a resort....
    Coldies on the peninsula. Over it.

    What would be useful is a camera focused on a ruler fixed to a platform. But this is Oz and the truth hurts! LOL

    @Claude Cat might be time to lock this given we've got the 20-29th obs thread open.
