Jindy copping some over the footy fields!
How this... went outside for looks!
Stars above plus flakes. Nice when it pops over from the range... no wind either.
ya gotta love the mountains. !
At -5.5°C at top station and 10 cents in last 2.5 hours, I reckon we’ll hear of the account of waist deep turns, at some point tomorrow...
Calling @Jasper Schwarz.....for an on resort obs report of course
Comparison shot of snow stake at Perisher over 2 hours.
Woke up to a decent cover of wet frozen snow on the Jindy North Shore this morning and now it's snowing light dry snow and sticking.
As per my tradition, I have chosen a nice night for a BBQ
In bed now. I’ll put one up in the morning.
Just proves the wide extent and the capacity of this system, when we have big falls in Tassie as well.
What a wide and wonderful country in which we live!
Ripped from Facebook. 2020 in Lithgow.
Flurries today at Ebor, sago falling in Armidale earlier this evening.
Plenty of fresh snow for groomers tonight. Sorry only taken on iPad
Been snowing all on and off all evening in North P
Complete opposite to last night, no wind atm at Adaminaby. Clothes line accumulating
Day trip to Oberon. Didn’t disappoint.
Snowfall here pretty much at its peak for the event, measuring 33 cm in total:
Max temp was just 0.5° C yesterday.
Cedarwood closing in on 3 ft, Baw Baw sitting on 37mm since 9am yesterdee
25 cents on Snow Stake. Today will be a good day for y’all.
91cm storm total for Perisher
78cm for Thredbo.
Thredbo claiming 110cm on snowfm
This morning' snow stake. Looks to be clearing but a great snowfall.
Maths and marketing don’t always add up.
Great morning in North P
Going to be a top day...
It’s -3 in the car park at Perisher with strong gusty winds and blue sky.
I observe a distinct lack of snow/rime in the trees, at -6.3C (Thredbo Top) and 78cm in 4 days you'd imagine a lot of that has to do with it being cold, dry snow.
and fair bit to do with wind too I imagine (not being there)
Where's the 78 figure from?
Their snow report (which contradicts their social media posts yesterday)
Just got up to perisher - looking mint - stay tuned for some pics and obs
@Donzah @W0nkey D0nkey give me a bell if you’re around. I’ll probably lap Interceptor & North P for a while
Vic. snow locations are looking superb.
I presume that in a usual ski season some of these places would have closed the roads by now so we Mexicans in lock down detention would not be able to access them to ski on them anyway.
Here are this morning's snow cam. pic.s
Tables, snow mobiles and railings at various locations that are seldom completely buried are now totally buried or just another snow shower away from going under.
Falls Creek Table o Meter
Rover Chalet . Bogong High Plains.
The snow is approaching the first red band on the striped pole.
Whiskey Plain( Dinner Plain to Hotham XC ski trail )
Telephone Box Junction at Mt. Stirling.
Looks like like another Cam that @Richard can add to the list.
Wow to baw baw!! Haven’t seen a dump like this for a while up there. Plenty I’ve nice sw airstreams showers to come yet up there imo
The showers passing through here atm are very heavy
looking good. Skiable everywhere?
New cams are always good - I think Hotham needs a few more cams for next year - surely Vail aren’t that poor? It’s only a shadow of former glory. Not criticising this site - can only link to what’s available.
My guess is that every ski location in VIC. including Mt. Buffalo would have complete cover on every XC ski trail.
You could ski into Keppel's hut from Mt. Margaret Gap today!
The 'find' of the season is the Rover chalet snow cam..
Thredbos snow report amounts jump around like a 4 year old on a tramp for he first time. Someone needs to learn to keep numbers on a spreadsheet or clearly communciate the numbers on a spreadsheet to the comms teams. They were reporting anywhere from 75cm to 110cm storm total yesterday afternoon but report 10cm overnnight with a storm total of 78cm, often report the over night snowall as the 24 hr snowfall despite the obvious that during the day before they had significant snowfall. Being an ex data scientist/inferential science stats person it drive me nuts, just wanna go up there and crank a bunch of snowfall monitoring stations with standardised methods!
I cant keep up so just watch the cams, look at BOM aws temps from thredbo/perisher to get a feel for snowline/wetness and look at peoples reprts from here off the mtn, much better than relying on resort reports
Liking that rover cam on the BHP. Thanks to these forums, I learnt of the Rover BHP site only a couple of months ago.
The rubbish that is Resort snow totals has been going on for 20 plus years. Standardisation is needed but ain't gunna happen.
Anyway Charlotte Pass is claiming a metre of snowfall now.
Also, 23cm in the last 24 hours at Buller.
Ha! There was a short period late 80s when all they gave us was FAIR, GOOD, VERY GOOD, EXCELLENT.
Yepbwhicj is websites like this are such a great resource!
If you cant get quantitative right much better to stick to qualitative and to be fair i don't think the average punter going skiing gives two hoots whether they report to that degree of accuracy anyway.
I observe that video clip music has strong Two Princes chord structure
You should have experienced what it was like in the pre Cam days for rubbish.
We were lied to constantly.
And you only found that out once you got on mountain.
June 1982 and we were staying at Obergugl in Thredbo, nothing at Thredbo, no snow at all. Put the radio on and Guthega snow report says all lifts are running and there is snow everywhere, so off we go. About 90 minutes later we pull up at Guthega, which to be fair had more snow than Thredbo but certainly not enough to ski on and definitely no lifts running. So back to the lodge and into the fridge. I haven't taken any notice of resort reports since.
Mt Imlay, 873m, overlooks Wonboyn on the NSW far south coast:
I have hiked up to the top of that hill. It is steep!
