Big Snowfalls in Australia
15-Jun
J2SkiNews


The Australian ski season started last weekend but despite a big snowfall in mid-May, most of the snow cover had melted away and Australian media posted pictures of partially snow-covered slopes over-crowded with no place to make a turn and looking like a Costa Brava beach at the height of summer.

The good news is that a snow storm that blew in on Wednesday and has got increasingly intense over the last 48 hours and has so far brought up to 45cm (18 inches) of snow to the country's ski slopes and its still coming down at many areas.

Perisher and Thredbo (pictured top) have reported the biggest accumulations to date, but it's good news for all of the country's ski areas.

Falls Creek, which unveiled the country's newest chairlift, the Eagle Express, last weekend, say that thanks to 39cm of snow so far Halleys Comet and Mouse Trap will turn for the first time in 2018 on Saturday with a decision still to come on Towers and Drover's Dream Chairs.
