    Some lights at the bottom of heavenly giving just enough illumination to see that not much has fallen on the freshly groomed.

    That alley from Shep to Buffalo is gold for moisture bee-lining Falls & Hotham, seems to amplify nicely with unstable NW systems IMO

    If the temps continue to hold there's going to be some surprises out of today.

    Just heading back from Perisher, a few snow flurries but a brutal NW wind. Centre valley was pretty wind scoured.

    Wind seems to have slackened off a bit. Odd patch of blue and can see to the top of Thredbo easily. Feels like the calm before the storm.

    Lifts running but no power anywhere else at buller. 1cm this morning maybe and winds a lot better than I expected. Visibility non-existant though and a million and one idiots trying to wipe out my kids everywhere we go.

    On the bright side it's not raining though!

    Heavy snow for about 20min this morning. Temps back up to + so hoping they slide. Skiing awesome on wombat.
    Power off to all of Mt Buller (expected for the rest of the day) - if it is due to industrial action, it stinks - it is dangerous and irresponsible.

    All on generator power. Raining with a bit of sleet. Cannot bother going out, due to the visibility and the crowds at the bottom of BB1.

    Yep expected until 5pm according to Ausnet. Due to industrial action it would be prolonged. Cause currently under investigation. It's all good, these things happen...

    Just FYI the times they put on that are just to stop people calling up asking "When is my power coming back on?". It will be a line fault somewhere and will probably take at least a few hours to get back on. I wouldn't sit around waiting for it, put it that way.
    Find a fire somewhere that is serving beers and relax

    Visibility is essentially one chair ahead, challenging but fun

    Yep just quoted it for information purposes, not really waiting for it. Got a few jobs done around the two properties, now by the fire, chilling and scrolling through social media. Conditions are just plain horrid for skiing and boarding.

    Winds have abated at Perisher and Blue Cow now all open. Having snow showers on and off and white out at the top. Based on radar we should see continued snow showers for a few hours.

    You would have to think that top of Thredbo will get a fair bit out of this. Cruiser cam looks unreal and set in!

    Just back from Dead Horse Gap a few ks up the valley from Thredbo at 1550m. Great snowball throwing and tobogganing on about 20cm of last wek's natural snow with some QLD mates whose kids had never seen the snow. Good snow started about 1230pm. Pretty star shaped flakes and all. Sleety drizzle with occasional flakes now in Thredbo village at 1380m
