    Reckon it's cloud seeding that's causing it?
    There seems to be absolutely no indication of this on the radar, not much on the sat besides a slight increase in cloud cover over the alps. And no moisture predicted on any of the models....

    Not often you see zero wind at perisher obs...I think they might nudge -12 or so if this calm keeps up. The record was set on a similar night to tonight.

    2 cms of fresh on top of a frozen base ( 10-15cm) made for good conditions at BB yesterday morning and again this morning. It was snowing when I came down from the Hut run at 5.00 pm on Thursday afternoon, with an almost full moon coming up. This morning, I could not see the switch tab on my new bindings because it was covered in bb dust. I won't call it powder, but it was light and dry. Had the top of Hut run to myself until the legs said no more. Winter solstice skiing. But check out the resort's lift reports and be cautious/ sceptical.

    Pretty damn chilly in Sydney today - didn't even crack the max of 14 predicted on Ob Hill.

    It reached a meagre 13.5.

    Also observe a complete lack of precipitation and it turned out to be an ok, albeit chilly day.

    Tomorrow on the other hand......

    The breeze has picked up from the NE and the sun is now being filtered by some higher clouds. Temp around 1c. It hasn't warmed up too much as the few cms of snow that fell last night is still on the roofs.
