With the large front dumping snow on Mt Kosciusko National parks and across Victorian ski resorts last night. Resorts like Perisher ,Charlotte Pass ,Hotham and Thredbo will enable cross country skiers to have a extended season this year. The approximate cover of 5 to 10 cm reported ,there will be enough to tour the resorts with some areas been a bit sticky. Back country and higher areas should have better snow cover and a snow base. Just when you though mother nature had retired for the season.
