Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

Another balmy day of great spring skiing on the way, with just a bit more wind than yesterday. The temperature is already 4.5 degrees and we are heading for a very warm top temp of 10 degrees, and the wind is a warm stiff northerly. The snow has had a very shallow freeze overnight so it will soften very quickly for really good turns on the groomers as soon as the sun hits each aspect.
