Stay on topic. This date range only.
bout ****ing time mate!
Weatherzone is reporting that Snowy Hydro took a snow depth reading of 76.4 cm at Spencers Creek this morning.
big flakes on the high noon cam
Snowing again at falls lightly down to Gebis
Just like a cop raid on a bikie club house......................thats a lot of blow down the can.
Observe some Ops in action with shovels at the chair at Mt P
That’s some good cloud seeding.
I observe it's colder now at 4pm than it was earlier today at 10:30am (Nth Central Vic).
It's interesting to note that Falls Creek reckon it's the most snow they've had on the ground on this date for over 30 years.
Son is 9, much better on skis than me. Started when he was 4. Me, well past 40 when I started....Good to hear. will Accelerator be on around the back.
As a side note, its seems that Blue Cow really filled in overnight. Not sure why it has not come up on the falls. Same with Charlotte's Pass.
Snowing and hardly anyone on High Noon. Quite cruel to look at , instead of being there to just punch it with some wide arcs.
I remember doing the hiring clinic at Falls in early June 1988 and there was a metre of snow on the ground. Sadly by early July both Hotham and Buller were busing school groups into Falls because they had no snow. I remember having 36 school kids in my beginner class on patchy snow near Cloud 9 as my very first ski school class as an instructor.
Mt Perisher was open on the June Long Weekend in '88 as well. Fresh snow everywhere and no snow making.
i think 1983 was similar right on opening iirc
19 June 2004 Thredbo had more snow than it does now. Have a photo of 50cm deep bottomless trenches down little beauty that day. Schuss was properly skiable. Funnel web was superb with no obstacles showing.
Neck and neck
Spent a long weekend in the Vic hills.Very low snow levels yesterday and already on Matlock Track well before Mt Terrible Track. So a gorgeous drive today through tall Eucalypts in snow. Plenty at My Terrible, intermittent cloud with blue skies and caught some glimpses of Mt Buller with a great cover. Not at all windy. Photo of Mt Terrible track. Hope it works, cant do others for now, there’s poor reception at camp
I observe it’s wet and blowing a hoolie as my old dear used to say (in North Curl Curl)
Yep Freshy same .
This was Guyra (~1330m) yesterday. Not that far from the QLD Border.
They say best start to season since 2000, but long way to go before we get too excited.
It seems 1960 was a pretty good season
I call bullsh*t!
Ah no.. its official 1960 - 1965 was probably one of the coldest period in our recorded history. Leaving aside the reported 2m at Goulburn in 1905 lol
I was born in 1960 that explains it. Good stuff happened that year.
(Slaps self for straying off topic)
we will get in trouble, although it is about this period
29th of May 1958 Falls Creek recorded 342 mm in 24 hours. Source BOM.
Snowing again up the back of Jindy
hmm yeah should probs strictly be in bbq tho I do observe the obs at Spencer Ck was taken 76.4cm today .
Compare 2018 and 1993...
You mean 1992.
Good old 81
Stay on topic.
Use the "season 2018" thread to compare years etc.
And the cause of all 3 events? Its similar in each case
Doesn't look bad at Feathertop...
Buller not quite ready to fully reveal itself yet. But hopefully tomorrow!
And for comparison, a similar view from before the storm.
Wow, what a difference a few days can make -Esp in Oz!
Some sting in the back end of this system here in Sydney. Rolling thunder for the last hour or so too
It's too bloody cold in Melb....like around 3degC.
Suns on way up....it's freezing but Team Bears warming up as sun is climbing igniting the windscreen in solar goodness!
Too cold to fill up with diesel this morning!
Should be a nice day ....wind slight ....cold blue sky...no clouds we can observe....
Time for a sausage roll and another coffee!
Hoth reported another 4cm yesterday and in doing so cracked the ton for this system.
Blue Ribbon shouldn't be far off?
Given it's the 19th, we should start a new observation period.
Probably need another foot at least I reckon. Top half down to davenport access trail is open but bottom always needs a lot of snow and the depth down there would be a lot lower than elsewhere.
I observe Buller looks amaaaaazing!!!
Cross Cut Saw & Howitt!?
Hotham BC. Got me all jelly.
