    Looks like it is going to fall south of Perisher and onto the main range,

    However is it is still 0.6 at smiggens which is 1750' fingers crossed the temp holds

    Looks to be easing up at Smiggins now, but its been solid, large flakes for the past two hours at times difficult to see. ground cover much better, but sadlt not enough to get anymore lifts running I wouldnt imagine. Might be a different story if it keeps coming today/tonight. Are you weather guys seeing anymore today/tonight?

    Looks like the Perisher AWS rain gauge not working showing nothing accumulated from 8:37am. Deptho would suggest this is not true.

    The bane of the westerly. It would be that frozen rain rather than snow.
