Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

That's a wrap. That's it, that's all she wrote, we are done and dusted for season 2017. I couldn't help but get up early, so I thought I would blurt out one last waffle for the winter. And how was that for a winter? It was my 30th winter up here ( I came for a one week holiday back in 1988, somehow got to know the publican of the General Store, he offered me a job washing dishes, and I am still here today) and I reckon this season was definitely up there with the very best of them.
