    Finally got full white coverage on the deck at the Marouka Ski Club (Davenport area, Mt Hotham).
    It is trying to snow, but it is really light.

    I observe a lone skier skiing LBS at 4:59:41 PM. This skier has 19 seconds to make it to bottom of Wombat which closes at 5 PM.

    Oh, it's snowing there too

    Its the enhanced infrared satpic from the "Layers" part of weatherzone. I think its only available if you pay the $60/yr fee.

    No mizzle covering Caroline springs ...sun is shinning coollish morning. Steady breeze as Team Bears motored over west gate ..flags and wind socks at right angles to bridge deck ...wind with a Northerly component....appears to be “mizzle”over most resorts ...main Vicco table measurement is approx a fingernail in depth!

    Lake Mt should be called Mizzle Mtn:whistle:

    The wind has picked up - the most exposed corner has lost some cover. Total depth not much more than last night, but it looks like the depth is more at ground level.

    2-3cm at Buller overnight sounds about right.
    Winds are howling.
    The appetiser has been served, and tonight is the main course.

    Agree with this. 2-3cm from village up. No new snow at bottom of wombat mind you. Certainly started filling in a little higher up though. This was completely snow free yesterday. Hopefully I can't see the shrubbery after the weekend when The Fist has delivered.
