Australia - Tasmania: latest snow conditions round-up

AUSTRALIA REPORT It's been quite a week for skiers in Australia with a massive storm hitting the country in the latter half of last week bringing very strong gales and torrential rain which caused some flooding and saturated the snowpack. A bit of a return to earth after the predominantly great conditions of the first half of the season. A number of areas including Thredbo (80/130cm / 32/52") shut down whilst it blew through, others closed most of their slopes.

Temperatures were not that far above freezing (3-7 degrees Celsius) but the rain and gales were a big issue. The good news was by Friday afternoon temperatures had dropped again and the rain turned to snow. Mt Hotham (70/120cm / 28/48") reported 28cm (11") of fresh and Perisher (75/110cm / 30/44") 15cm (6") of snowfall overnight on Friday/Saturday, Falls Creeks (80/115cm / 32/46") 17cm (7"), while. Things have calmed down since Sunday with some further, lighter, snowfalls, Things are pretty much back to normal with Perisher posting all of its slopes open again and the most terrain open in the country and top two I the world at present with 65km (41) miles of slopes skiable. Thredbo has the deepest snowpack in the country but they're all pretty close and pretty healthy.
