Today's Weather: Cloudy. Medium (60%) chance of snow showers, most likely late this afternoon and evening. Winds west to southwesterly 20 to 25 km/h turning southerly 25 to 30 km/h in the evening. Forecast Max -1°c

Surface Condition

Firm Packed

Fresh cover on a firm base

We shivered through a chilly night in the mountains as we reached a low of -6.2 degrees. It's going to stay cool today as we head for a cloudy top of -1 with moderate winds and the chance of a snow shower. The cooler overnight temps meant that our amazing snow makers could pump the guns till this morning, and it's looking good out there!

Skiing & Boarding

Chilly overnight temps mean skiers and snowboarders will find hard packed conditions and good cover across the resort. Hit the groomers early if you want some fast turns. 17 lifts are spinning to get you around and we have 2 Frank MBP's with a range of features groomed and looking prime. Take the insider knowledge from Ski Patrol and check out their run of the day- Summit .

Speaking of mountain watch, their LBS cam is no longer. They had to use the phone lines to the cafe for other purposes so the pc running it is gone, the cam is on the wall but not for much longer. Was wondering if they were interested in selling just the cam if they don't have another location for it. Would make a good replacement for VS cam so we could have multi views.

Great this morning with fresh snow but later in the afternoon, it started to moderately rain. I'm hoping mountainwatch is correct in his prediction of 27cm tonight!!

Quoting miss_b_haven: It's good to see the snow. I like seeing the fluffy flakes falling. Snowfall is pretty and makes me feel happy. I'm happy that you're reporting that snow is falling. Keeping us informed is always pleasing, too. I've appreciated that all season. :thumbs: :thumbs: :) :love:

Quoting wolly: Well its snowing heavily as I type. White stuff coming from the sky. Started below box corner. The square one on the road. Everyone seems happy. Glad to see snow. The roads are white. Snow covered. Very little wind. Not breezy. Coffee has been consumed. More snow to come. Yay. Happy to see snow:)

Hopefully enough in it to give 'viable' areas a nice freshen up. Sadly it won't get us into Boulders this year.

Temps really marginal, so i'm happy to hear it's snowing down to box. Hopefully it stays like that all through the day, cos there's heaps of moisture around.

At least it's snowing this morning. 3-4cms so far.
26/8/15 - 7:03pm
At least it will be cold enough to fire up the snowmaking on the weekend

Fox cam is looking rank.... Whole mountain is looking a little untidy now, need 20-30+ cents to freshen it up, then we will be back to a pretty extensive cover

Good morning tuesday. Early start today. Very windy . Cold wind. It tried to snow last night. 3 flakes on my vehicle. No frost though. Lots of little kiddies off to the races. And I have had time for coffee.

they only open the lifts they need for access to race venues e.g. BB1, ABOM, Bonza, Wombat, Skyline, and bear in mind that these runs are either partially or fully blocked off because of the races, but yes you can get out for an early slide.

Do the lifts open early for everyone this week because of the interschools?
