Hi Putin, Snownami was never going to deliver any snow to Baw Baw today but tomorrow and especially early next week could be 30cm-40cm. Then on the following weekend maybe 20cm which would be enough to set you up for the 31st. The truth about Baw Baw is you only need 30cm prior to your trip for the mountain to be open.

So does that mean it's looking good for the 31st? So many more runs open than there was last week

You should be fine. Another strong SW front coming in on Sunday with plenty of moisture, so Baw Baw should (hopefully!) do very well. Just hope that there isn't too much melt due to the warmer front and rain during Wednesday/Thursday.

Went up on Tuesday with a friend and his daughter. Great day! Snow was firm and fast at the start, softening in the afternoon. Excellent cover and no crowds. Sunny and a bit windy in the morning with cloud building in the afternoon.

sounds good to me!
Does anyone know how strict the alpine backpackers are on the "no alcohol in room" rule?

In all seriousness though, is it just something they put on there for legal reasons or will they be actively on the lookout?
