    Oscillating between sleet and snow at Thredbo all morning. Mostly snow above 1700. Still some very good lines if you're prepared to explore.

    I observe all 7 lifts open but a reported snow depth of 27cm - for Painted to run they normally need around 50. Nice and deep up top then!

    Went out at about 8.30 am at Hotham. Absolute puking down with lovely soft big flakes for about an hour. then it cleared up and you could see the Orchard from the top of the Heavenly lifts for about 45 minutes. Then the visibility dropped at about 10.30am and it started snowing again. At the moment the cloud is about but the sun is shining bright. Im hoping there is a clearing trend for the afternoon.

    Fat flakes at Guthega & snowing all morning across Perisher. Runs are sweet but gear is wet. Parachute in great shape but visibility is poor.

    Obs at Baw Baw suggest they're getting hit very hard today. Showers from the SW and very cold. Perfect for them.

    Took the dogs up to the snow today, at around 1200m. About 20cm on the ground and heavy snow showers while we were there. Was really throwing it down at times. On drive out it was snowing heavily down to 700m according to the GPS.

    After lunch it did clear up at Hotham and we had a fantastic partly sunny afternoon with great visibility. About 20 minutes ago it started to snow lightly again but it's stopped now. What an awesome last day weather wise. That's it for my reports - back to Melbourne tomorrow.

    Iceman ... This is one resort that definitely under reports ... at least at the moment! The snowfall today has been awesome ... Some GREAT skiing to be had tomorrow :)
    There is a good compacted 30 cm or so in the bowl area. Up top and midway on some runs there was at least 15-20 extra on top of the compacted. There were stashes were it was deeper than that :)

    When I was walking back from dinner about an hour ago it was still snowing, albeit lightly.
    Just looked out the Window ... still at the moment.
    Guess that makes it 'off and on'!!! Really cold though.

    Looking forward to see what the night brings when I start work again in the morning :)

    I observe BOM indicating -6 and lower temps across the resorts this morning, and the snow cams indicating pristine corduroy on all the major runs with the mist of a perfect night of snowmaking still wafting around

    Surface light and dry underfoot in Thredbo this morning. Lapping Michaels and Bowl. Cutting through the deeper stashes easily, not heavy in any way. Is good.
