    Yes and thats the assumption that id say whoever wrote that has more than likely made . The snow that Thredbo gets "usually " comes from the west with alot of wind that usually blows it off the main range and onto the upper and mid slopes. this snow and wind came from the east and as i originally stated there doesnt seem to be evidence of the 20 cm claimed

    Predom from SSE, actually.
    Typically a very favourable aspect for Thredbo by comparison to other resorts.

    Gusts over 80 and 90 kmh at various Sydney stations. Apparent temp 1-2C.
    Wasn't too bad on the way out to grab food in Nth Sydney with only wind, but on the way back with a little moisture it was icy!

    Not a lot of accumulation for nearly a year!

    Must be global warming.

    Thredbo's recent insta story adds plenty of credibility to the 20cm claim looking at those tables at Merritts.

    Hotham:


    Hotham and Falls is announcing lifts in an hour or so.
    Buller says “closer to the weekend”, but they definitely will be opening new lifts, we just don’t know what.
    Perisher is opening all 4 resort areas.
    And nobody knows what Thredbo is doing.
    Edit: Thredbo is telling us to “stay tuned”.

    Just had a burst of hail here in Eburbs of Sydney. Very heavy fall lasting about 20 mins.
    Uppers are still very much polar here ATM.

    Falls haven't announced it on their website yet, where are you getting your intel from JB?
    Hotham have announced on their website :)
    As a side note, Sundowner skied well this afternoon, but all east facing slopes resemble coral reefs more than ski slopes!

    Sorry JB, thought you meant FC opening Friday (as it followed the post announcing Hotham's opening), but upon rereading, you only said opening ;)

    On topic.....pic of Sundowner at Hotham this arvo

    And I’m sure as hell they did. Last year in the village one night we got about 3cms. Easily knee deep from middle station up. Happens often

    Thredbo calling “85cm storm total”... what a bunch of galahs. Proof that Marketing people aren’t from this planet.:emoji_unicorn:

    I wonder what the 3 days of sun over the weekend were all about. :emoji_confused:The ‘eye of storm’?!
