    It's snowing, blowing and dumping at Buller.

    5cm heading towards 10cm on the upper mountain over the day, and obviously more coming tonight.

    With Koflers open, and hopefully a sneaky Summit opening, tomorrow might be better than yesterday.

    You can see the snow falling reasonably hard in the light off the new Kooroora.

    Looking up at Namadgi before sunset the clouds gave the distinct impression of snow falling up that way, as did the wind in Canberra.

    Ok well my final report for the day, Hotham was wild! There was good untracked sections that were knee deep if you knew where to go. The lifts closed after lunch and we did a few more and kept hiking back up. There was some fair dinkum powder out there around 4pm! Tomorrows first tracks will be nuts.

    Not looking good if it coming this way, as its already on the 'extreme' level at Island Bend
    Temps have gone positive for the first time all day here, now 0.3 degrees so dry micro-pellets of snow are starting to stick and turn wet.

    Someone with the right gear could replace the stocks & skis/boards with swords & shields would make an epic pic. 'Blue Cow horde storming Terminal Castle.'

    Thredbo snowing light to moderately in the village since early arvo. Accum about 2cm as at 8:30pm. Would be a stack more up high and if the current radar blob over Vic tracks this far north, we could have a surprisingly heavy dump overnight

    To be fair, and I was there, SkiPatrol were running SkiDoos up for those struggling. But really with a little resort knowledge, if you skied high around Side Saddle its not really much of a walk.

    For those of you who missed first tracks..... BAD LUCK..... Sunny little if no wind VERY COLD, probably some of the best skiing in a long while. But it didn't last, by 8.30/45 the cloud had rolled in and the wind with it. Certainly made it easy to head inside for a coffee.

    Taken not long before it got dark in Thredbo.
    I’ll get a pic in the morning and see how the accumulation goes overnight in the village.

    Windy AS in Thredders today. :emoji_dash:

    Its been sleeting/sprinkling/raining at sawpit for about the last hour. Winds have backed right off. The odd gust, but you can hear its further up the mountain.
    Will be another lovely drive up in the morning
