Snow Report 14 July 2016 - Australia & New Zealand

Snow, snow, snow! Whichever side of the Tasman you're on there is some good news in terms of snowfalls!

A mild and wet weekend depleted much of the snow at the Australian ski resorts, with the lower slopes looking very brown by Monday.

By Tuesday the storm arrived bringing blizzard conditions with massive winds. The snow started up high and then lowered further during Wednesday, making all the runs white again! 30-50cm fell in this storm. Pick of the days of the season have been over the last few days.

Enjoy the weekend conditions when the sun will peep through for great on and off-piste hero skiing!

Mt Baw Baw

New snowfalls this week at Baw Baw have got things going again. Snow depth: 13-50cm

Mt Buller

30cm from the storm for Buller which has reopened a heap of lifts that had to close last week. Only Grimus, Boggy Creek and Federation remained closed Thursday. Snow depth: 53-81cm

Mt Hotham

We could be looking at some of Blue Ribbon, Gotcha, Keogh's and The Orchard opening in the next few days once all this snowfall has been organised! Snow depth: 94-105cm

Thredbo 14.07.16 - Thredbo Facebook
Falls Creek

International Poma is set to open this weekend meaning all of Falls is accessible and most of it skiable. Great conditions this weekend! Snow depth: 85-95cm


46 of 48 lifts top open at Perisher tomorrow and at the weekend. You can't ask for more than that in mid-July!


Super conditions at Thredbo with 13 of 14 lifts open earlier today.


Difficult conditions continued again through the weekend. Snow arrived in the Queenstown area at higher altitudes on Wednesday, lowering through Thursday and speeding things up a bit after the slow start in the South.

By Thursday morning there was 10-20cm new snow at the skifields around Queenstown and Wanaka in this storm. Enough to get things going at some skifields that have not opened yet. Things weren't quite as positive in Canterbury despite some new wind-affected snowfall. Crazy winds have prevented the skifields from opening.

Should be more snow into Friday so the weekend could be pretty good in places once the wind eases!
