    Hotham snow report (doing their best to avoid "rain" at all costs)

    It snowed! 5 cm overnight and it is still snowing moderately as I write this. It is pretty wet so it is not a powder day but it seems to have mixed in well with the snow on the ground so the turns should be pretty smooth in many places out there this morning. Down low the precipitation may be a little damper so wear something waterproof and get out there for some fun soft turns. Enjoy. Cheers Bill.

    Rain at Buller cleared around 11am to beautiful sunshine, 11cm fell overnight, some of that would have been lost in the rain but overall a great day. Def taunting the friends who bailed this morning.
