There’s plenty to be excited about up at Hotham with up to 60cm of snow expected to fall by the end of the week!
After some rather wild winds blew the clouds in yesterday, it rained at lower elevations and in the village we received 4cm of fresh snow. Snow showers have continued on and off throughout the day. Freezing levels are expected to drop as low as 1000m by midweek.
Throughout this period, a maximum temperature of -3 degrees is expected, so it appears Mother Nature is certainly smiling upon us. We are also hoping that more snowmaking opportunities come up with the cooler temperatures and lower humidity.
The average natural snowdepth is now 37cm, with 7 lifts currently in operation – The Summit, Big D, Road Runner, Summit Trainer, The Village. Australia Drift and Playground. If the snow continues to fall as predicted, we will hopefully see the much anticipated opening of the Heavenly Valley chair later in the week. Fingers crossed!
With more snow on the way, and plenty of extra activities available for kids these school holidays, we’re sure there’s something for everyone up at Hotham this week. Check out our holiday package deals and head to Hotham soon!
