    Big flakes at Island Bend now. Heavy rain on roof went silent and the flakes commenced. Temp has gone from 8.0 to 0.3 and the accumulation begins!

    Just popped my head out of the tent at sawpit (1200m ish) and it’s wet snow. Slush on tent and car. Hope to wake up to white here tomorrow and even more fun up the hill

    No snow in Jindabyne at present, but the wind is starting to pickup.
    Still around 3’c in town, I am not so sure if the snow will happen for us here.

    Wow! Going by the Perisher obs little or no pre-frontal and 27mm in the can. Bloody cold now and looks like it is still coming down.

    The drive up looking....chaotic.

    Enjoy all you lucky peeps up there. On my way to the office - yay.

    Road is very moist from Penderlea farms. Only needs temps to drop a bit and will be icy AF.

    Otherwise bullocks was an easy park and just waiting for the 720 express to depart.

    Snowing all the way down to the Alpine Way/Kosciuszko Rd intersection, properly settling from the top of that hill. Heavy snow from Penderlea but no chains yet.

    Buller would be wrapped with the fresh fall esp with the interschools starting.

    Everyone would be just that little happier!!
