As good as seeing the snow fall is, this looks perfect!
Yes mate I also love to watch/ski in falling snow.
But today is amazing, no wind, blue sky and squeaky dry snow top to bottom
I observe that this is my happy place, and I observe that now I am truly sad for not being able to enjoy this moment on the mountain.
Wow that looks incredible, finally it looks like winter up there
she looks good
You are a complete and utter b*rstard ! ;-P
Observing a snow flurry on Perisher live cam ATM
I observe I agree with Mister Tee...and that I pity us Victorian fools
The 360 degree snow cam. at Lake Mtn. is back online. It looks fecking amazing.
It looks like almost NOBODY is there. Even the cleaner has packed up and gone home until October.
Haven't seen that one before. Thanks for sharing.
Snow stayed light and reasonably dry all day out back today, even against the sun.
Never had Aus like that.
Finished off the day with some reasonably heavy snow showers just off the Summit of Tate.
And although not quite as drastic also us Queensland fools
Ha. Rubbing salt in the wounds to all of us who can't make it down this year.
Love ya work Pow
Can you spot the little squiggle that is Tantangara Reservoir - north of an obvious Lake Eucumbene. Plenty of red shade on the sat pic, so BC adventures await. Road to dam not gated in winter, though will be snowy.
I’m pretty sure that part of the park is technically closed due to bushfire damage. I haven’t been up the road since the fire, but everywhere else I’ve been is still closed. I can’t imagine it lasting either. A few specks of snow still in adaminaby and along middling bank rd but in the sun today it was warm, I’ll have a look tomorrow when I head up to kiandra.
Nearly 8 months since early Jan fires and trees still not cleared!!!. But some of the below will be usual winter closures ( I put in an *) and Tantangara Rd not on the list. If possible post pix of Kiandra Courthouse and surrounding valley.

Stay on topic.
Weather observations for this system only.
Currently -1 in Adaminaby and no precipitation since the 23rd, still a bit of crap on the ground. If anyone’s keen for a few turns I’ll send the address.
is evening, a few people out on the tabletop trail
Hotham/ Dinner Plain resort staff have put the skating and classic XC groomer chook footer grooves on the surface at Whiskey Flat. For whom I know not but in a more sane and forgiving cosmos I would be skiing on that today August 25th 2020 !
Look at that fresh snow and sunshine and blue skies.
This is just torture.
And to think that the valley was burned severely in January, now there's half a metre plus of snow. That's Oz.
My tribute to the great contributors and I’ve missed a lot I know that made this season bearable. It’s certainly one that will live in our memories for a long time
It looks like it is still snowing at Baw Baw.
Those picnic tables are all but buried so you work out how deep that is.
Now that the camera has defrosted, Mt. Stirling's Bluff spur hut area looks as good as it has since the May 2020 snow storm happened. Possibly better!
Very cool @Rat trap bindings. Nice work Saw a couple of my pics in there as well.....Cheers.
Top pictures of the best skiing conditions in 2020 that I never had!
Had a medical appointment at Canberra Hospital this afternoon and driving along Adelaide Avenue I was amazed at the snow coverage on the Brindabellas. The snow line is a couple of hundred metres below Tidbinbilla Peak and Camel's Hump, which have summits of 16-1700 metres. The high tension powerline over the ranges behind Cotter Dam is very obvious with the snow on the open ground and I can't recall ever seeing snow in that area.
Looked great from the high point near the Majura hwy to federal hwy turn.
A few shots from a very good Saturday!
It rode as good as it looks, proper powder and white-rooms everywhere.
I did a day trip to Cbr and return yesterday.
Looked awesome driving in from Qbn side .
View across town to the Brindies as good as it gets.
Cracker day down in Jindy!
There was also distinct dusting of snow on the range to the left when driving down the Monaro on Sunday morning, just past the Tugga roundabout, which only occasionally gets snow from certain directions/big dumps
Arrived on the hill this morning, and this system really has delivered. Coverage compared to this time two weeks ago is worlds apart.
What's really nice is how it's stayed dry. "The week of the season" the staff are saying, and it's hard to argue with that.
surprisingly long lasting cold dry snow has meant for some pretty great backcountry skiing around Mt Hotham the last couple of days.
unfortunately today its turned into windy soup with a mixture of snow sleet and rain.
I observe visibility is poor, up top there is none
Just putting this here for posterity.
Main Range obs from Tues-Thursday:
