unfortunately nothing on line permanently at the moment. NTAC cams won't hotlink and are only working on weekends ATM, Snowsports only run when open and the generator is running, and Rovers cam is just waiting to be recommissioned. Hopefully it won't be tooooooo much longer

Someone has already been for a slide on a board up at Mawson, cover looks pretty decent, even over on Rodways there is snow, though suspect not top to bottom.

Apparently done for the season, Mawson is a better chance and will likely get more snow from this system on top of what already looks adequate, hopefully it holds up for the weekend.

Any chance that Ben Lomond will be open on Saturday? Or is it finished for the season? By the looks, there's more snow on the way!

Not sure if anything turned before they broke. They had issues with both Bass and village diesels. Josh and Steve are both out there tonight swapping the diesel on village, so Eryl tells me that he intends to run Village, Summit and either Fannies or Bills tomorrow. The wind should abate tomorrow. Saturday is shaping up to be a purler. Dozer
