Significant upgrade from the BoM for Hotham this afternoon. Wednesday seems contentious - wise heads here say temps borderline...

Any opinions on what the snow level will get down to on Saturday with the colder air?
I 'll bet it will be XC skiable from 1200 M. at TBJ at Mt. Stirling by Monday morning. Snow will be seen settling on the road side at 800 M. ASL in VIC..
I have now purchased and printed my day entry pass for Falls Creek for this Sunday :) .

This thing is going to be good. :ski:

I am calling it the " SDS Therapy front".

It does look like a mini Snowmageddon to me.
Lake Mtn. will close the road on Sat. .So will Mt. Hotham coming from Harrietville.
That is my prediction. :emoji_snowflake: :)

Even smaller lower elevation ski locations such as Baw Baw and Lake Mtn. will be building a base from this!!

Mt Buller: 61-81cm

Mt Hotham: 74-86cm

Falls Creek: 59-65cm

Mt Baw Baw: 28-34cm

EC Determs falling to line with EC Ensembles this morning.
Wow.
Half a metre looking a shoe in by 9am Saturday IMO.
This event has the potential to ‘save’ the main mid-winter period in Vic resorts - if it largely delivers.

It may even result in some non-SM terrain open on the 3 Vic majors? And help to spread crowds - which is good.

Yer.
Barring an unseasonal heat wave, this event will consolidate a metre base in the alpine (above 1600m) throughout August (with/without additional snowfall) IMO.

As a rough guide, the Falls Summit needs approx 80cm base to open and once the Summit opens, the rest quickly follows so this should get us most of the way there.

I hope Hotham skiers have programmed Omeo into their GPS?

Omeo - Hotham can have a long but easyish stretch above the snow line - if snow falls to low levels, as predicted Saturday am?
You'd definitely want to be coming this way to Hotham...or just pull up stumps and head to Falls if you're already on the other side haha

Hoping this gets the Orchard closer to opening up, that would be downright delicious!

I predict the road from Omeo to Hotham will be a fitting chains to ALL CARS on Saturday . The other way in will become shut.

You could ski from Mt. Loch Car park all the way down to Dibbins Hut if this thing comes through . Of course you need the skills and the right kit to do it but I am just saying someone like @hongomania or @Chaeron would be interested for sure.
