Snow Report 10 August 2013 - Australia & New Zealand


Snow at the weekend, followed by a little rain, then a good fall of snow again that lingered later through the week than initially expected. Although the icing on the cake - a predicted 60cm dump on Friday - didn't eventuate, the resorts are looking pretty good.

This weekend looks like being one of the best of the season so far, so enjoy if you're up on the mountains!

Another system is due through early next week - let's hope that brings another foot of snow!

Mt Hotham - Natural Snow Depth: 77cms
The Drift opened during the week, followed by - to some surprise and pleasure - Blue Ribbon on Friday. More snow needed to open Keogh's and The Orchard. Hopefully that will happen this week.

Falls Creek - Natural Snow Depth: 91cms
Falls is looking very good with all lifts open for the first time this weekend. The two pomas - International and Lakeside - are now running. Multiple runs now groomed in the summit bowl.

Mt Buller - Natural Snow Depth: 46cms
Buller opened more terrain during the week, and today only the Tirol and Boggy Creek T-bars are not operating.

Perisher 10 August [Source: Perisher.com.au]
Perisher - Natural Snow Depth: Approx 35-95
New snow this week has refreshed Perisher, which is now looking in beautiful shape. 45/47 lifts open for those up there today.

Thredbo - Natural Snow Depth: Approx 20-90cms
All lifts open and groomed runs across the resort.


A little snow midweek and Friday freshened things up and is a foretaste of things to come.

August is looking like turning much more snowy, starting yesterday in the south and spreading across the South Island later in the weekend.

North Canterbury and Nelson

Rainbow (40/15cms).  Hanmer Springs (72cms) will reopen its poma lift tomorrow. Mt Lyford - 140cms with all lifts still open.

Porters (160/40cms) looks great on the upper part of the mountain. Mt Hutt (315/265cms) has been having a great, busy year and recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.

The Mackenzie

Ohau (100/55cms), Roundhill (80cms), Mt Dobson still has good cover across its slopes (100cms).


A couple of good snowfalls up high for Treble Cone (288/5cms) this week, but the area around the base needs a lot more to turn it white again. Cardrona (120/45cms).


Coronet Peak (80/40cms) and limited off-piste. The Remarkables (100/55cms).
