    was just down for three days - cover to bottom is wonderful. Runs skiable that really do not get infilled too often, especially at a the end of June / start of July!

    Classic cam. Covers the full 600m vertical of Thredbo Resort. Biggest vert in Oz. Lifted.

    Very special

    This is the view that was the very first web cam in the snow fields Sep 1997. Originally installed on Black Bear inn, moved to Lantern in 1999.
