July has seen some epic days in the mountains across multiple continents in the southern hemisphere and since a picture says a thousand words, here’s some pow snaps – from one of the more unlikely continents down there – to tide you over until the next bout of off-season blues takes you.

Thredbo:

Home to the longest vertical in all of Australia, Thredbo is all about storm skiing.

Perisher:

The Southern Hemisphere’s largest snow resort with an impressive 1245 hectares of terrain to ride, Perisher also hosted its own powder party last week.

Mt Hotham:

Nearly half of Mt Hotham’s ski trails fall within the advanced category and Hotham boasts the greatest proportion of black trails in all of Australia (not to mention the off piste and side country). It also attracts the designation of ‘powder capital of Australia’ and it’s fair to see why after looking at the images below.

On second thoughts, maybe these photos won’t have helped with the off-season blues…
