    The Upper Mountain at Mt. Stirling is filling in a bit more but that spot always holds snow. It certainly looks wintery now but the lower mountain is not XC skiable yet.

    Hotham cams looking pretty snowy after last night, nice to see it starting up. Anyone know how much they might have got?

    Another cold day on the Jindy North Shore. Mountains cloaked in rolling cloud and drifting flurries

    Rode up to Yarra Ranges (unnamed) highest peak, north of Lake Mountain today the back way. Very pretty but glad I didn't take my XCs.

    Temperatures in the southern Vic ranges topped a balmy 11C in the sun today, about 5 now. No snow at elevations between 600 - 1000metres. Patches of blue skies, moody mists rising from gullies


    Yesterday light but steady rain for a couple of hours from roughly 1pm, then on and off for the rest of the afternoon And night.

    We swapped snowboots for gumboots yesterday and went hiking in the rain which has a beauty all of its own. Bracelets of liquid diamonds fell On gum leaves. If you look closely at the 4 - 6 beads which were about 3 mm diameter, in the foreground along the leaf’s edge, you can see reflected on their surfaces, surrounding leaves that play host their own glass jewellery




    We ate and drank and danced with these guys, partying the night away
    After all, they’re fun-gis:D



    This year’s good rains have brought them all out of the woodwork. Literally

    Partying all night, it felt like the longest couple of nights in ages.
    Probably since about a year ago;)

    After spending the day chopping firewood, we just watched Mother Nature graffiti across the sky




    so now we feast



    @dogski , happy now? ;)

    Next moisture band not far from NSW resorts now. Hopefully another 5-10cm in it.

    Found a bit out there today. The natural snow over the past few nights is in good shape but outside of the groomed snowmaking it’s sketchy. Just because it’s yet to compact and form a base. Managed a couple of turns in resort. Machine snow was on the wet side (base building) and not easy turning. But made for good sculptures.

    A lovely heavy rain shower this morning on the Jindy North Shore, certainly a little warmer than the past few days.

    No tickets for PB this year. Friday at Thredbo most likely, possible Merrits open.
