Hotham Snow Report – Tuesday 29 May 2012

The weather from last weekend has well and truly cleared out and it has been sunny and warm the past couple of days, particularly today with very little wind about.

No doubt everyone is itching to get back out there but given how far out we are from Opening Weekend things are looking alright (for the moment).

The pics below give a good indication of how much snow is around the place.

Given the forecast for the next seven days this could turn out to be more productive than snowmaking. Plenty of snow has been piled up from last weekend for this.

The 7-day forecast isn’t really that exciting. Looks like the inversion (warm day/warm night) pattern will continue until Friday until things change with some precip of the wrong kind. There really is little point in going out all on the snowmaking front with a forecast like this. The ski co. has been copping some grief FB and ski.com.au but I’d rather they save the money now and go all out when the conditions are more favourable.
