The weekend delivered some great skiing and snowboarding across the Australian resorts after a short sharp storm on Friday dumped up to 15cms of the cold dry snow across the Alps. The storm only lasted a few hours in each resort as it sped north and it’s lack extended high winds left most resorts covered with the kind of snow that is only delivered every once in a while in Australia. The Storm on Friday meant the early birds on Saturday were lucky to score the fresh under clear and calm blue skies.
