Rain washes the last of the snow away (almost)
Even the snowfields could not escape the rainfall with Perisher Valley recording 48mm and Thredbo 42mm to 9am Saturday morning. In total 97mm of rain have fallen over the last 3 days in Thredbo. The rain has washed most all the snow away. Though, as most people can feel, the cooler than average temperatures for this time of year have allowed the last remnants of snow to persist at the highest peaks.
Snow is only left on the top of Thredbo, with mountain bikers now taking the place of skiers on the mountain.
