Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

Back to spring! The sky has cleared, the wind has eased, the temperature is on the way up, and we are heading for a classic spring day. The snow has had a good solid freeze overnight so it will be firm and fast out there first thing this morning, and then the solar aspects will soften as the day progresses to give us really good spring snow conditions.
