The fresh powder has coated the resort, including our 18 groomed runs.Snow conditions are expected to stay soft, with wind-swept stashes blown in by a moderate to strong wind to be found throughout the day.For the jibbers, we have two terrain parks open today; Leichhardt Terrain Park and Yabby Flat Mini Park.

Lots of comments about the earthquake in the Victorian restrictions thread, including building damage in Melbourne

Looks very firm up there this morning? Hopefully the warm weather softens it up again so I can go back to spring skiing ha.

Kelpieboy: Nice big earth tremor at 9.15am. Out with the dogs ,sheep spooked about 2 minutes prior and dogs all gathered around me looking a bit edgy. Wondered what was going on then felt the earth move under me. Lasted about 25 seconds I reckon ,missus says windows rattled at the house. Apparently felt in Melbourne and Geelong as well. Anyone up at Perisher feel it ?
I must have been typing as you posted. Very subtle but very noticeable in Sydney Eastern suburbs. It must have been a decent size. I was actually sitting on the bed and thought I might be having a stroke or some other sort of medical mishap :) (Fortunately I don’t have a point of reference).

Anyone on the mountain just feel the earthquake? Centre in Melbourne but felt it as a very gentle sway in Bondi. Lasted 15-20 seconds. Hopefully no one out back under a big cornice.

Chookfooter: Actually the numbers are a bit misleading. This season peaked in late July, above the average by about 10 cm, and has been dropping since then. It dropped below the average line in the 3rd week of August and has been below since then, the season normally peaks at the end of August. As of last week it was about 50cm below average, so I doubt this latest dump will bring it up to average. So overall, an early flash in the pan and downhill from there. A very abnormal season this year, and I'd suggest if you want to head out backcountry after the lifts close you do it soon. Just another fun fact, the level at Spencer's Ck last reading was 70cm below the average for the same week in the 60's. The average for 10's (the last decade) in that week was 40 cm less than the 60's, but the 00's were worse. Global warming is definitely here.
Red dot is estimated reading for 23rd based on 125 cm by Hydro on 15th plus recent 30 cm fall less compaction etc to give plot at 140 cm. So not too far below the median and mean. Hey, judging by the pix the last few days have been awesome regardless of depth.

Chookfooter: Perishers main reason for extending the season is marketing, advertising the fact they can be open longer than Thredbo gives the impression that they have better snow than them. Now that Thredbo has announced they are closing early that marketing has already been done for them so there is no incentive to extend, they certainly wouldn't do it for the money.
Gotta sell them epic passes.

I saw it mentioned earlier on this forum there was talk of extending, but since Thredbo pulled the pin that talk has disappeared.

NightSky: As they say, it ain't over till the fat lady sings. Until they turn the last lift off, there is always a chance. :love: The glass is half full.
Yes I am holding on to hope too. I note their web page says "planned closing day on Monday 4 October". https://www.perisher.com.au/plan-your-trip/new-to-perisher/winter-experience">Link Call me an optimist!

teleroo: Is usually skiable snow within resort area up high (say above 1800 m) mid-October. And lots on the Main Range. North and west faces will be melting rapidly but southern and eastern faces will hold snow above 1800 m, so that will give you a few hundred metres vert if you head to the right places. Just by way of yardstick, I think this season officially peaked at about 180 cm depth on the Spencers Ck snow gauge, but unofficially it probably just snuck above 200 cm but then melted before next reading. So has been a little above average year (in terms of the pattern for last 30 yrs).
