Small top up on the way for ski resorts in cracker season

Rob Sharpe, Saturday September 9, 2017 - 15:14 EST

Australia's resorts are enjoying their best weekend in over a decade.

Snow is deeper than 2 metres at multiple resorts and the skies are clearing and winds abating. For those planning to turn it into a long weekend, Monday should also be great with just the chance of a couple of showers, most likely in the afternoon.

On Tuesday and early Wednesday it will be warmer, with some snow melt and patchy rain. However this is merely a precursor to a fresh snow event coming later on Wednesday and into Thursday. Another round of snowfalls is then due on Saturday, making sure that Sunday will be a great day on the slopes to round out another weekend.

Further ahead and the snowfalls look to be fewer and farther between, so it's best to hit the slopes now while it's amazing.
