    Guns are firing at Yabby Flays, Happy Valley and Mnt P as well. At least the temps are low enough.

    No, but it doesn't stop you creating one - or discuss more broadly in the BBQ thread.

    I can only see light snow up high for what my opinion is worth....gleaned from regular data sources. Will sort of make for some wintry atmosphere during the music festival. Expect to see a couple / few cms by Sunday morning gathered in areas and on the trees if it makes it that low. Looks like I am heading down...

    From picnicing & sunbathing weather just a week ago to snow & slim chance of a run opening by Monday. Reckon we're not doing badly....

    I predict that I will be skiing on man-made snow in the beginners area at Perisher on the opening week-end. No natural snow is forecast.

    I predict that I will be walking to the top of Front Valley and rolling down like a little child on the grass.

    Feels like winter in Jindy. Fire going and a glass of red. Temps in the negs in the mountains already so they will be trying their hardest to make some snow for a magic carpet ride!!!! Not the first and won't be the last time there is no snow on the opening weekend. Beats a rainy Sydney.

    As you can see by the cams....a bit of snow about. Still falling lightly with sun breaks. Big music weekend here at Perisher and last night Sneaky Sound System in the plaza at Thredbo under a brief snow shower. Given up on beer count....

    Might get some south-east action tonight in NSW. Temps cold enough and incoming precipitation from the coast of Vic. Good weekend even without snow.
