    That's on the Alpine Way, as I was passing through. There were flakes as well from Dead Horse Gap down to the village.

    Couple of pics from Donna Buang this afternoon, just as I parked up it started to snow/sleet. No more than 1-2cm, very windy, lasted for about 15 minutes, temp according the car was 1c.

    Love Mt. DB, it was the second place i ever saw snow, it was about 40cm of absolute fresh when i was there in about Aug 1991.
    No one else around, quiet and magical. All to ourselves for 3 or so hours, and when we left there was still no one else around.

    Can't see it on the cams, but I reckon they would be. It's cold enough.

    I observe a lot of snow making at Perisher & BC. Guessing runs from mid station down Monday if not tomorrow.

    And they just invested heavily in snowmaking.
    You'd think they would be pumping it like crazy.

    Good to see so many little ones out there having fun. They only need 2cm to be hooked for life.

    Minus one at Mount Hotham airport, 4 degrees at Falls Creek. Looks like a temperature inversion.

    Have confirmation that Falls is making snow. Wet bulb in the negative 20's, low humidity. Should be a big night...
