Great outcome, hopefully somewhere in the remainder of the season there is another one of these 30cm top ups, would be great if peri stayed open till the 18th, that week from the 11th - 18th would have the entire of NSW at the resort. Good revenue for them

Nice to see some fresh at Falls (& Hotham) - but a little disappointing when one looks at Perisher goodies.

Possibly a result of the southerly component. Hopefully some rare joy for our regional skiers?

It is still snowing at Lake Mtn. ! . IMHO they got 10 to 15 cms and counting. Look at the wheels on that resort management 4 WD. The tyre rims are vanishing from view.

I said this was a Baw Baw special and @POW Hungry said he/ she did not think so. Well Baw Baw and Lake Mtn. have done really well . They both have fabulous deep fresh spring XC ski conditions today. It won't last long on the ground but we can only dream about 2022.

Grooming I got with Mel and much of Vic in LD! Amazing!

Well done Lake Mtn Resort! And Huey of course!

A Rare Good late Sept dump -It does happen occasionally. :cool::ski:

Apologies, Gee I should have checked this before hitting go button! Not helped by Ispellchecker-randomisation.

Reiterating, it’s about the latest time in the season for a LM groomer to do it’s thang. A credit to resort management- a pity 75% of potential users can’t take advantage - looked great this am. (22/09)

I observe a decent amount of new Spring snow that skied well early on. By around 11:00 a.m. the Spring sun had “glued” the surface.

I also observe a small snowball that had rolled and collected more on the way - see pic. And I thought that only happened on cartoons :). It’s easy to where it started in the little line centre of pic. Stopped on the skin track.

Tis the season for pinwheels.
I reckon I can have a punt on the origins of it's kinetic energy.

Lachlan, Tasmania
Drove down to Hobart yesterday afternoon. It was fine but very windy until I got about 10km south of Ross then bang, huge bank of ominous grey clouds and down she came. Sideways rain in sheets, howling wind and vis down to about 100m. Thankfully everyone slowed down and drove sensibly for the ten or so minutes to get through the frontal band. Hill about were white but I suspect that was hail rather than snow.

A few wet flakes coming over spring hill (highest point on the Midland highway) then rain on and off down through Hobart to Blackman's bay. Clear out across the water now but Kunyani blanketed in cloud so I can't see if there is snow.

I am meeting the owner at a rental property I have applied for out of Lachlan today. House sits at about 520 ASL on the north eastern slopes of kunyani. I suspect there may be some white. I have the chains in the car just in case as its a pretty narrow windy steep little dirt road to get up there. Fingers crossed for safe passage and an approval of my application.
