"Best season start since 2000"

From the Sydney Morning Herald :-
Victoria's ski fields had one of their best starts to the season in years with the three major resorts reporting big crowds and plenty of snow.

At Falls Creek, spokeswoman Debbie Howie said temperatures as low as minus-7C during the past week had created excellent snow-making conditions.

Mt Buller recorded 30cm of natural snow and created 50cm in man-made areas as the weekend progressed.

At Mt Hotham, spokeswoman Gina Woodward said they had an amazing start on Saturday, attracting around about 1200 people over the weekend.

Three lifts ran were in operation with an average of 24cm snow depth over the mountain.

"It was our best start to the season since 2000," she said.

The trend looks to continue with more snow forecast to fall from Friday.
