    How sad was that yesterday? Tear-jerking stuff, kind of like that mid-October feeling.

    Does anybody feel like fixing the Thredbo cams? Most haven't updated since yesterday, or in the case of the Basin, 1974.

    I guess I'll leave those golf clubs at home then!!!

    :woohoo:

    Jindy gets snow when it is from the SE as the mountains don't block its path. The problem is that sometimes this snow won't get up to the mountains.

    About to hop in the car and start the long trek from Sydney so I hope that there is no snow on the road.

    Keep us updated Tbirdfly

    Back in MEL ( with annual trips to the 604 )
    a fun day at Buller today - started snowing early and got quite heavy around mid morning, not sure how much, but the skies cleared to a sunny afternoon and had some great runs down LBS and Summit - taking the rugrats out now, not a bad day considering the prognosis last night.

    P.S. just booked a month in Silver Star for Jan '07 this a.m. so we have that to look forward to now as well

    Even in summertime it is hard to get your bearings with that cam. It's a shocker.

    It's stopped snowing in Jindy now, rain has all but stopped too, east Jindabyne hills look nice and white though. No worries about snow on the roads until you get to the park entry gates according to local radio.

    I'm gonna say 2nd best. Although my run through Golf Course was probably the best run for the season.

    About six inches of dry snow fell this morning. Turned to snot very quickly though. Dried out a bit again in the arvo.
    The fall was nothing to write home about but we definately need it after yesterdays misery. Should keep us on track till mid september.
    Heaps of core shots today, lot's of sharks out there.
    Hopefully the punters will pack it down for my next days off.

    Spring skiing today at PB. Loads of sunshine and hard pack in the morning and soft in the afternoon.
    This cover won't last long into Sept but at least it is skiing.

    Clear and calm day at Thredbo yesterday. Nice cover up top, ice in the middle and slush down the bottom.
