Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

This is it, the last day of season 2019 is upon us, and it looks like we are in for a warm, windy and tropical one to finish on. The sky is mostly clear but the wind has picked up to a strong northerly which is forecast to strengthen during the morning. The temperature is a whopping 11 degrees already, heading for a top of 12 degrees but the wind is going to make it feel a little cooler. The snow has not frozen overnight so will be reasonably quick on the groomers for the first few laps and then will soon slow for soft snow fun. Off piste will still be skiing pretty well all day if you hit the right aspects at the right time. The wind may be an issue with some of the lifts so check the status before committing to an objective. Providing the wind is ok, we should be cutting laps at Heavenly for the last day, which is always a great way to wrap it up for the winter………and would be a nice bookend for this year. If you cast your mind back, Heavenly Valley was skiable for the adventurous on Opening Weekend (who were surprisingly rewarded with coffee and ales from Joyce Brokhoff hut). We then got washed out but, were soon up and running again thanks to a massive effort from the snowmaking and grooming teams. A big storm arrived in early July and we have been rocking ever since. The extended week has seen awesome spring skiing and there were plenty of epic powder days earlier on. All up, it was another great season with lots of awesome turns to be had all over the mountain. I hope you scored your share. Thanks for following my morning waffle, have a great summer, and I look forward to bringing you the good news next winter. Hooroo for now!
