And, as the world tilts the other way, it's our turn again We got a few contributions to last year's antipodean thread, so let's see what this year brings.
Our season starts on the weekend of 8/9 June, and things are looking promising. Last year - a terrific year for snow - we could slide around on part of the hill for Thredbo's opening weekend. It wasn't top to bottom on opening day, although (if memory serves me right) they opened High Noon on the second or third day. The Supertrail opened a week or two later.

Forecast Updated: 5:24am Thur, 16 May 2013
The remainder of the week should stay fairly cool with light scattered snow showers on and off til Friday.
Another change around the 27th-28th should see light snow start to fall on the higher areas. Temps should then drop even further as a series of cold fronts move over the mountains bringing snow to lower levels. It's possible we could see snow falling for quite a few days with temps low enough for the snowmakers to run for long periods during this time. Fingers crossed this could be the base builder we need for the start of the season.
Looking long range there is good potential for a another fall of natural snow between the 6th-9th June.
