    Weather obs say it all, really. Light Westerly winds yielding a text book subsidence inversion. Mountain AWS vs Cooma a perfect example here.

    Hard work at Thredbo yesterday! Wow that last snowfall dropped like honey a crumpet. Found some semi windblown pockets up around the schuss & above golf course but also had a couple of full on face plant somersaults which I havent done in many years. BC looking good now with exposed scoured areas covered up.

    Blazing sunshine at Falls. Still plenty of snow (not 1m+ as advertised) with few hazards. It's getting sticky though.
