Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

Cold and mostly clear with a strong westerly wind this morning. Yesterday warmed a little throughout the day and the snow got a little damp in places but it will still be dry packed and great on the groomers this morning while off piste will be a mixed bag. Higher areas should still be dry while lower areas may have moved into a melt freeze cycle and be pretty firm underfoot. Providing the wind is not an issue today should see the opening of the Gotcha lift for the first time this season.
