“Almost a metre of snow has been dumped on Mt Buller’s ski fields, the deepest snow level ever recorded for a Queen’s Birthday long weekend. After two years of lockdowns, the ski fields opened a week early this year thanks to a huge dumping of snow not typically seen until mid-July or August. Mt Buller’s snow depth has reached 76 centimetres, the most for a Queen’s Birthday weekend since records began 44 years ago. It was so deep on Saturday that staff were digging chair lifts out of the snow.”
Five years ago scientists announced the demise of skiing in Australia.
