After so many days of r $@n here at Island Bend I was confident a big white dump was immenent. The ground briefly went white but the temp is still about 1 degree too warm, hence massive falls of semi frozen precip. The Snowy River is threatening riverside campsites (everyone has now departed). Gotta be pukin at higher alts, just gotta!

Wednesday night into early Friday is about good accumulations in resort and alpine areas. Friday is about colder temps, low level snow and great snow quality in the resorts. The best for combining quantity of snow on ground and quality will be Friday morning.

Temp. has dropped nearly 5 degrees here in Hallam in 30 minutes with some light hail. Should be all good for tonight when this reaches the alps.

Better yet, let put 3 separate resorts within spitting distance of each other.

LOL it's gettin' nasty!

I observe for a "dry" winter punctuated by higher than average pressure values and lower than average cold frontal penetration, we's been doin' bloody alright! Bit of a story tho, last handful of seasons been only 2 or 3 big events, not very consistent.
So stoked we are in the midst of another decent event tho...

CedarWHAT?!! Yeah boy, Cedar f***ing WOOD yo!!! :puke:

Probably recovered already given that was probably read this AM...
The depth was measured on Tuesday 15th before the 70cm or so of snow that's fallen since. I would say its recovered plus. It would be over 2m now IMO.

I take that back it was probably taken Tuesday am so may not show the destruction caused.

Hasn't stopped hosing down here at Cleve Cole, snow is more than level with the top step. A bit colder, the snow not so wet and the occasional bout of big sago. We came back from a run down to Howmans because it was getting a bit too wild.

I think 70cm is not real. 20cm on the mid station roof of kosi chair. Probably a consistent 30-40 higher up.

I think tonight is the big show. Still coming down nicely at dhg. Hanging about trying to see some thunder snow that the sat pic is promising.

Just the right temp to invade Poland.

My subie thermometer is broken. Currently reading 33 degrees.
Drives me up the wall . The inability to post insta posts of #howhotisit? is a bugbear.
Our Subie thermometer is still working and reasonably accurate. It was reading 30 degrees today on the Sunshine Coast!!:eek:
