“In the words of one tracker, it’s PUKING snow right now.”
“That means it’s coming down fast and fluffy across the Australian Alps in places like Thredbo and Perisher — right down to Great Lake in Tasmania.
A cold front moved over eastern parts of NSW on Saturday, bringing blizzard conditions across the state’s alpine region.
Snowfalls at Thredbo ski resort reached 67cm (more than 2 ft) yesterday afternoon as temperatures peaked at minus five degrees.
Blizzard conditions haven’t stopped all day at Perisher, where almost one meter of snow fell this week.
Similar conditions were felt in southern and mountain Victoria, bringing locally heavy snowfalls to Mt Hotham, Mt Buller and Falls Creek.
