    Perisher has around 75 now, be interesting to see depth on Thursday after all the snow has settled, still be over 120 base. 45 lifts if wind dies off. Still gusting to 55kmh. Thredbo up top will be close to whatever Perisher gets, remember the Perisher measurement is at the Valley, up top , where they measure it could be a lot more. and the main range, may have got up to a metre.

    I'll be interested to hear what CM has to say but the first hand report I just got was that the snowfalls at Buller have been underwhelming and they are talking about holding a Mogul comp next weekend on Bourke St :eek:

    I was out clearing some pathways as it got dark (Thredbo). By the time I finished and turned around; the pathway was covered again with snow.

    The village is -6 now and the tree branches out my window are moving so there is still some wind. I can see clear across the valley at the groomer on HighNoon. Eagles Nest and karella are just visible through the windblown. Can't see any stars.

    Another 10 overnight for PV based on the radar IMO. Light and dry at -5 in the village and -6.7 up top. Love that wind to keep blowing in from the main range and building some drifts. A 1+ metre base should make for some good skiing next weekend.

    A bare foot walk outside the lodge confirms it's nice and dry at Smiggins.

    I think the gauge at Perisher is unreliable , it seems to have frozen like the Thredbo top site.

    I agree Thredbo would have seen similar amounts to what Perisher is reporting. Bluff was loaded. Similar in Basin and Sponars.

    19.2 mm in gauge @ Perisher at 6 am. Temp is -5.4 & wind @ 55k equates to a windchill of about -35. Balmy!

    Perisher is reporting 20cm in the past 24 hours making 83.2cm in total for the past 7 days. I also observe that EC got this one right.
