Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

Here comes another classic warm spring day! The sky is mostly clear, the temperature is already 3 degrees, the wind a moderate northerly, and we are heading for a balmy top temp of 7 degrees. Although the temp is well above zero, the snow has had another decent freeze overnight, and it will be firm out there first thing but it will soften pretty quickly for another day of really good spring snow turns. Enjoy.
