Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

Hang onto your hats! The wind is a very strong norhtwesterly this morning although it is forecast to ease and swing to the southwest later in the day. We had a few cms of very wet snow last night but it has now dried up and the temperature has dropped so the surface has set up and it is pretty slick out there. The groomers will be the go first up as anything off piste is probably best avoided until we get some precipitation (of any sort) to soften things up a little.
