After that depressing rain, the snow is back – with a vengeance. Weather is wild in most mountain areas right now. But enjoy it once the winds drop.

Hotham is reporting ’25 cm of cold dry snow in the last 24hrs’.

Mt Buller is reporting ’15cm fresh on top of 10cm yesterday and still falling’ (It’s going to be ‘EPIC’ says the over hyped snow guy on their daily video update).

Thredbo is calling the storm the ‘Blizzard of Oz 2.0′, with ’40cm of fresh in the last 24 hours’, and Perisher is reporting ’50 cm’ in the same time period.

Please check road conditions before heading to resorts and consider taking a chain saw if you’re accessing the backcountry via unpatrolled roads.

Apart from all the resort websites, there is a list of snow reporting and forecast sites available here.
