    Raining in Harrietville. Massive dark clouds approaching Mt Hotham. Wondering if temps to high?

    Snowing heavily in Perisher for last 20mins. Came in from the SE. Started around 340p as ice/micro-hail falling from sky.

    Really quite surprised this has hung in there all day today.

    I would estimate 2cm has fallen in the last 40min at Perisher.

    Look at the roof line of Lodge across valley

    Was rain at the Skitube at around 4:00 with black clouds hovering. Should be a nice little top up for a sunny day tomorrow.

    Hotham today was good! Tried to clear all day and did get some flurries in the arvo before the clouds parted somewhat.
    Snow in good condition in morning. Needs more natural but was a fun day!

    This time period has ended I know but PV and Thredbo top station both -10 this morning. Coldest morning of the season so far for both?

    So a small skier would not have triggered it?

    Tyrion Lannister, perhaps not. It's a forum not a grammar party
