Snow Report 23 July 2015 - Australia & New Zealand

We are now into the peak of the ski season in both Australia and New Zealand. With no school holidays on and more lifts open its a great time to go skiing.


It was fine and sunny through the weekend until Tuesday. Then, a little rain arrived on Wednesday as well as some strong winds. The forecast has some very good snowfalls arriving from Friday night and continuing through into Monday. Early next week we could have closer to 1 metre of snow on the ground.

Mt Buller

Mt Buller now has eight lifts running but there is still plenty of terrain yet to open. It needs a good snowfall to get things really going. Snow depth: 31cm

Mt Hotham

Rain and a little snow over the past few days has softened the snowpack. It will take another 40cm or so to open The Orchard. Snow depth: 52cm

Falls Creek

Falls received 4cm overnight and has great cover for intermediate skiing across Sun Valley. More snow needed for the advanced areas to open fully. Snow depth: 46cm


12cm snow overnight with 40 lifts operating means Perisher certainly has the most extensive terrain open in Australia.


5cm overnight with the resort recommending the groomed runs for the best skiing.

Cold and snowy on the weekend with up to 15cm at some skifields. It has become fine during the week with some nice sunny days.

It looks like being mainly fine but perhaps a little unsettled this weekend, with unusually warm temperatures. Some snow would be welcome next week.
