Do not, I repeat, do not look at the Aussie resort snow cameras for at least three or four more days.  I'm reliably told the current rainy period will turn to snow once this little warm front passes.  Keep looking at your pristine new Hell's Belles, rather than checking our current conditions and exclaiming "Hell's Bells!"

 

Enjoy!

And whatever you do........don't look here.......2013 Season - Australia

Today's long term forecast from www.snowatch.com.au.

 

Showers over the weekend have damaged the cover a little. Looks like we should see some more light shower activity this week on and off. Temps are likely to be too warm to make snow for most of the week.

Friday is the day to keep an eye on. We should see a cool change with snowfalls developing that should be heavy at times with blizzard conditions likely as the winds reach gale force about the peaks. Saturday should see the temps drop even further and snow will reach very low levels across the mountains and plains to around 800m. Light snow should then continue on and off across the 21st-22nd. At this stage I would think around 30-50cm across the 19th-22nd is possible.

Following this light snow is likely from the 25th-27th. Some snow up high on the 29th-30th is also possible.

The charts are starting to show positive signs that we should see more consistent snow falling over the next month.

It would be wrong of me to say I fly back to oz on the 26 July ... Just wrong.

You are welcome, I do believe that we made a great choice for you. Please report back once you get them on snow and let me know how you like them.

A couple things to consider,this ski is for patrolling so I'd steer clear of twin tips,why? You'll be burying the tails in the snow almost every time you answer a call. You'll want something in the 78-88 mm width waist . You'll need to be able to take the ski anywhere that duty might call you BUT you'll be answering a lot of calls on the trails with the most skier traffic (statistically speaking). You'll want something with a good edge and good base,not something that's fragile and needs to be pampered. You'll be hauling sleds and poles and other gear that will make you appreciate a tough topsheet. You should be eligible for some NSP type of incentive and the bottom line is that while your heart may belong to SuperG , you're not going to do a lot of SuperG turns with a sled.

OOOps looks like you've already gotten plenty of advice and mine is far from expert. Good luck!
