Today Hut lift going right up to the top! That will open up a hill full of snow!

Went up for the first time this year, yesterday. Only Tank and Hut lifts running. The cover was reasonable with some brown patches evident in the morning and more appearing as the day progressed. Not a lot of people there, but with only two lifts, the lines stretched out at times. Good weather with some sunny patches but mostly light fog. Overall, I had a good day but with Melb temps around 15 - 17C for the next few days, unless it gets cold enough at night to run the snow making, the snow will not be much good later in the week. Hoping for the next dump!

Thanks for report, chriscross. I'm bunkered down with a cold at the moment but, if able, will get an MSG ski in over the weekend. Cheers.

Great conditions at bb on Wednesday with 15-20cm of fresh, very dry snow. White by the road at Neerim and in the trees from Tanjil Bren. Signage said fitting chains to all vehicles as snow covered the road from Chain bay 4. Only a limited area was open for sliding with the best snow through the trees at the top of the Hut run with some ice where the artificial snow had been produced down lower. I skied out of the resort on Thursday and put the only tracks through the fresh along the village trail out to Mcmillans where the narrow run from the short cut to the junction was a hoot. The village return trail to the right was still blocked with a sign saying "Closed for summer maintenance". Hah!" Ventured a short way onto the plateau along the Tanjil trail but turned back just after the bridge over West Tanjil creek as the cloud rolled in and visibility deteriorated. Light snow on the way back. Chains required on the way down the hill, too.

Snow was down low by the Thompson valley road when I drove up SF road from St Gwinear on Tuesday afternoon. Wicked Wednesday saw half price lift tickets but then we discovered that only half the runs were open. What? 20-25 cm of snow under the trees but where the grooming machine had been through it was scraped down to almost nothing, with dirt and rocks showing through, especially up the top of the Summit run. Lots of snow through the trees up the top of Hut but they only ran the lift half way. Fortunately, Champagne was open top to bottom and the MC lift was running but it was thin and patchy in places. A good fun day but hopefully after another snowfall, they might get it together to open all the runs.

chriscross: Thanks, but I thought the OP might have meant "blue bird" day. Can't wait to get up there this week.
Its fantastic up there have not seen it like that for a long time, driving back yesterday snow on all the hills in icy creek. Very strange driving down the hill and there being snow on the sides of the road till Icy creek. Hundreds of trees down clean up crew had a lot of work to do .
