    Can anyone tell me where the Thermometer at Falls is located? 10 am Temp shows 1.9 but where on the mountain, Village 1600m top station? One of the lifts? [​IMG]

    According to the information I can find, the AWS is located at an altitude of 1767 metres at (-)36.8725 S 147.2744 E. No idea where this actually corresponds to.

    Hmm plotted it on a map and it seems to be somewhere around the top of the ridge south of the village, not far from the playground poma. Maybe its at Cloud 9?

    Yeah...

    Here's a Placemark file for those that have Google Earth installed: clicky

    Edit: I wonder if it's at the Lorna Dunkley Shelter? Anyway, I'm sure someone will know for sure. *gets back to doing some work for once instead of browsing these forums [​IMG] *

    There was a picture of it posted here last year, perhaps the year before, but I can't find the post... [​IMG]

    Anyway, I thought it said (and showed) that it is down near the lake near the dam wall.

    The dam surface is exactly 1600 metres when full. The Frying Pan Raceline which feeds it and skirts the top of the town is about 1602 metres. 1767 metres would have to be on top of a ridge somewhere.
