Snow has returned on both sides of the Tasman, with midweek delivering the goods. Next week is also looking promising for a welcome return to winter weather.
It was snow or rain on the weekend depending on whether you were in Victoria or New South Wales. The weather was a bit warmer than expected and Perisher got pretty wet. This week has been colder with some snowfalls at all resorts. There looks like being a little snow on and off until the weekend which should turn out to be mostly fine.

Some snow midweek including 5cm in the last 24 hours. A power outage since Tuesday has limited the number of lifts running. Hopefully that is sorted soon. Snow depth: 61cm
Over a metre on the ground now at Hotham with 7cm into Wednesday morning. Blue Ribbon was set to open today. Snow depth: 107cm
Falls Creek received 10cm on Tuesday and 8cm on Wednesday. International Poma went down for cable repair and is still down, which is a pain for repeat accessing The Maze. Nevertheless, all terrain open at Falls and great skiing to be had. Snow depth: 86cm
The wet weekend is a distant memory with snow today and 46 lifts are running.

5cm into Wednesday and the same again into Thursday.
Almost a foot of snow fell midweek after some warm and windy conditions earlier. Looks like a significant snowfall over the next few days, especially in the south of the South Island.
