Australia - Tasmania: latest snow conditions round-up

AUSTRALIA REPORT It's been another remarkable week for snowfall in Australia with several areas in Victoria reporting snow totals passing the 1.2-metre mark (four feet) from the ongoing storm system. Ski areas in the state were however closed, as feared, for a further week after the initial five-day fifth lockdown in the state in the battle to suppress outbreaks of the Delta variant.

As we complete this report the news is that the lockdown is over from Wednesday, meaning ski areas should be able to re-open with much better conditions than when it began 12 days before. However, stringent rules will be in place including no arrivals from over the border in New South Wales where ski areas have stayed open. But with Sydney in lockdown, areas have not been seeing many skiers to enjoy the epic powder days of the past week. Skiers who can visit must also present a negative COVID test. Perisher (30/70cm / 12/28") has 103 of its 111 trails open and 45 lifts turning, that's almost everything of course, with most lifts running and amazing conditions. It's had the best part of a metre (40") of snowfall in the past 72 hours and is believed to have the most terrain open of any ski area worldwide at present. For ski areas in Victoria, the snow numbers are more impressive and we expect all to re-open if they have not by the time you're reading this. Falls Creek (95/147cm / 38/59") was posting the country's deepest base at the time of compilation but with the snow still dumping these positions may change.
