Snow in Australia Helps Get The Season Started (14-Jun-10)

Australia, June 14, 2010 - Fresh Snow across Australia's

Fresh snow across Australia’s ski areas helped get the season off to a positive start at the weekend when the country’s resorts began opening for winter 2010.  Temperatures have been low for the best part of a month allowing for plenty of pre-season snowfall and with 10-15cm (4-6 inches) of natural snowfall just before the resorts were scheduled to open, it’s been a very good start to the season.

Perisher in New South Wales was the first to open, on Friday, reporting 110cm of new snow on a base the resort had been building for over a month with their snowmaking equipment. 

Mt Buller has four lifts open with the resort’s Bourke Street run is in good shape. Mt Hotham has three lifts operating and Thredbo six lifts, four runs and a basic terrain park.  Falls Creek has 10cm (four inches) of snow lying too, and three lifts running.
