Winter Snow Cams - A More Accurate Indication of Natural Snow Depths

The Selwyn Snow Report - Weatherzone snow report and depths etc.

The Charlotte Pass Cam - high and free of snow making, away from the centre of the photo.

The Rock Creek Area Cam - gives an accurate representation of conditions away from snow making. The elevations in the view are from 1760m in the valley to 1860m on the peaks in the distance. During typical winters this view would be covered with between 1m and 2m average snow depth. In 2008 the valley was covered quite well with around 130cm for nearly 2 months. An ordinary year would show at least a metre cover here and two to three metres in a great year, at least. This information comes to me from someone who has skied in this area often.

The Smiggin Holes Cam - a good guide when the cam is facing more to the left of the main run.
