Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

Here we go again! We have had an average of 25 cm of cold dry snow in the last 24hrs and it is still snowing heavily this morning. The temperature is close to minus 5, and the wind is a strong westerly which is blowing the snow down low into the valley, so the turns will be awesome everywhere! Is this another day of the decade?? Rug up and get into it! The Harrietville Road is closed as I write this but will open as soon as possible.
