Australia - Mt Buller Snow Report

We are near the Mt Buller ski fields, so I wanted to bring some at-a-glance info onto the dashboard as the season is about to start.

It looks like this in the new section view, and the snow cam is a live feed:

The section only shows during winter, and then auto-hides the rest of the year.

Now we just need some snow!

There’s lots of good data in both https://api.mtbuller.com.au/api/weather/widget and https://api.mtbuller.com.au/api/weather/forecast if you wanted to display other attributes.

Do people ski in that?

No wonder we get so many Aussies over here.

It sounds like the season started a week early this year (traditionally starts on the June long weekend) - the snow is likely to come in the coming week

Not the most constructive comment.

A quick look at Remarkables in NZ suggests not much different right now.
