Cloudy in the mountains this morning with some light snow showers at times above around 1500-1600m. The Victorian resorts had a dusting of snow last night which will mean a nice fresh layer of snow for the grand final weekend.

The clouds should clear this afternoon with the remainder of the weekend (and public holiday Monday for NSW) being fine and sunny with light winds.

That should see out the season at Baw Baw on Sunday afternoon and Thredbo and Selwyn on Monday. Remember there is still plenty of good skiing and boarding to be had at Perisher, Falls Creek, Hotham and Mt Buller as they will remain open til next Sunday the 8th.

Next weekend is looking fine and sunny for those getting that last slide in for the season.

After the last of the lifts close we could see a little snow across the 10th and 11th.

That should pretty much do us in regards to snow for the season, but there will still be a good cover of snow for anyone heading to the back country once the lifts close.

This will be the last of the daily forecasts fr Season 2017. A season that started out terribly with virtually no natural snow for the whole of June. We were lucky to have a good run of cold nights allowing the snow makers to create enough snow to have lifts running.

Things soon turned around with the first week of the July school holidays delivering the first dump. From there the snow depth gradually built and was up around the 1m mark at Spencer's Creek by the start of August. Then things cranked up a gear and we had three maor dumps over the next four week taking us well over the magic 2m mark (peaked at 240cm) leaving us with a depth not seen since 2000.

Feel free to email or message on the Snowatch facebook page if you need a foreast for specific dates. Follow the international cams to see how the northern hemisphere resorts are fairing.

Thanks for following the forecasts this year. I hope you got some of the great snow we had this year.
