Light snow overnight but it built up to 15-20cm cm at the base. Up top that usually means 30cm but will be up there momentarily to see for sure.

Winds remain light.

The snow, which fell from around 9pm through 7am, is fine, light, dry powder - just much less volume than a normal year's levels. Once that base is in these are actually the sort of snow falls that allow the best access up on the mountain.

Looking quite crowded today (last day of the long weekend) but it should be quiet mid-week.

Potentially clear weather through Wed night when small snow is expected on the forecast.
