Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

This is alright. We have had 8 cm of snow since the lifts closed yesterday and there is still the odd burst coming through this morning. Most of it came through earlier in the evening and has been groomed in so there is just a little fresh sitting on top of a smooth base on the pistes. There is a very faint crust and the snow is a little heavy off piste but there will still be plenty of smooth fresh turns to be had.

Snow condition Fresh
