Thredbo recorded 10cm of snow on the weekend and Perisher recorded 12cm, and the Brindabellas closer to Canberra also received a dusting of white powder. But the Bureau of Meteorology has eased expectations of more snow showers in the coming days. Meteorologist Helen Reid said the open skies meant hopes for additional snow would have to be delayed. “We don’t expect snow for next week, although it will be quite cold, there will be no rain, so no snow,” said Ms. Reid. Next week “there will be clear skies and icy mornings, but no snow with it, looking up until Monday,” she said. The no snow forecast for the coming days does not slow down preparations for the long opening weekend in Thredbo, starting June 12. Richie Caroll, marketing director for Thredbo, said the resort was “extremely excited to kick off the ski and snow season for winter 2021”. “We set the snow cane on fire this weekend and now is the perfect time as we have a huge list of events and activities happening on and off the mountain,” Mr. Caroll. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, ice sculptor Kenji will sculpt designs and live music and street performers will warm up the evenings. Mr Caroll said the snowfall consisted of “six inches of snow in height, descending to the village over the weekend, covering the entire resort in a blanket of white snow”.
