    Will the Barometer rising rapidly effect the snow levels and amount of snow falling as I have noticed that Trentham is at 107.1hpa and rising rapidly ?

    Looks to be Puking again on the Perisher Cams. The shrubbery on the right side of Excelerator is almost completely covered. Big difference compared to 48 hours ago.

    I observe Perisher looking pretty damn good considering the start of the week. Cold and mid winter like with plenty of dry snow. Can't wait to get out there.....
