    Can't be due to snow/conditions... would have to be a major crash of some sort.

    We drove through the accident site about 1430. Pretty bad but I'm surprised it was still causing issues late this afternoon. Emergency services were packing up as we went through.

    Usually involves a fatality for the road to be totally closed.

    But stunning up the hill. Sunny and calm after a very cold night.

    Best use of a flybuys card I have seen in quite a while

    I was in Melbourne city before sunrise this morning taking some photos. It was pretty brisk, 4c according to the phone. Very light wind. I will sorely miss those mornings as we move properly into spring.

    I observe blue skies and sunshine above Mt Buller, along with mountains on every side, many of them snow capped. The snow is firm and fast for big clean turns.

    I observe it's a great day to be alive

    Severe Weather Warning for DAMAGING WINDS
    For people in Central, South West and parts of East Gippsland, North Central, North East and West and South Gippsland Forecast Districts.


    Issued at 11:27 am Sunday, 17 September 2017.

    Weather Situation: Northerly winds are expected to strengthen ahead of a cold front which will approach from the west overnight before crossing the State during Monday afternoon and evening. A low pressure system is expected to move to the south of the State later on Monday resulting in a strong and gusty westerly flow over southern parts.

    DAMAGING WINDS, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts of around 110 km/h are expected to develop about elevated parts of the western and central districts during the early hours of Monday morning before extending into elevated parts of eastern Victoria from late morning.

    DAMAGING WINDS, averaging 45 to 55 km/h with peak gusts of 90 to 100 km/h are expected to develop about remaining parts of the warning area, including the Melbourne metropolitan area, from around sunrise on Monday.

    Winds are expected to ease during the afternoon with the risk of DAMAGING WINDS contracting to the southern coasts and the eastern ranges during the evening.

    Are there actually many people still skiing on the mountains or is it dead quiet?

    Apparently today was pretty busy at Buller for September.
    This week is going to be dead quiet though, Buller has started closing lifts for the season.

    Buller was solid today. Not as crowded as last Sunday but definitely a decent turnout.

    Saturday at Falls was really quiet. Fresh tracks till 10am. Today was busier though. Car park was full and people parking down the road towards Howmans Gap.
