Hotham reports best August falls since 04′

Mt Hotham, News, Weather

The lunacy of weather has continued in all sense of the word this week with Mt Hotham recording 35cm in the last 7 days and overnight reporting the mountain has seen its best August falls since 2004.

‘A mixed bag of weather this week with the day of the season to date last Tuesday, fresh snow, sunshine, more snow, dry snow, wet snow, windhold, rain and more! It is now snowing again and in the last 24 hours, 10cm of fresh flakes has fallen.

We’re in the middle of this next storm and have received 16cm of snow in the last 48 hours and 35cm in the last 7 days. More is expected by the end of the weekend. Currently the snowfall for August is at 119cm – the best August snowfalls since 2004.’

This is a huge feat for Hotham, but also all other resorts recording substantial falls in August also. Considering July didn’t live up to expectation, its excitement to finally see the 2010 season take off.
