How about that but there was definitely sum damage done by the wind. wonder how often is snows there?
Wasnt just snow, we are talking deep deep champagne pow!
And some guy broke the ski distance record!
Sorry it's taken me so long to post, but it took me an hour of shovelling to be able to get into my car !
I know you sand gropers are behind us real Aussies in time but this news is verging on yesterday!
Well, that would be important if we were all being serious !
To get it so clear, so low and such good coverage is quite exceptional.
It has a vague chance on Saturday arvo too, with a more favourable Southerly fetch (Bluff Knoll loves a Southerly much like Buller).
Not enough wax.
There's not alot of anything in that video.
Laughter, there was a lot of laughter.
through snow coloured glasses
Is there any other way!
good name... Mr Wunderlich... " Despite a slippery start and never looking confident on the thin powder, Mr Wunderlich set a new record – measured at the time as 4.51m. After pulling himself out of a shrub he was overjoyed with the record."
I’m impressed by the effort to carry the skis and boots up there, in the dark, for that reward.
However he’s not setting a good example for the kiddies - no helmet, no avy gear and no St Bernard
but he had a slippery start, so, must have been well waxed and keen. he probably should have been on teles then he could have done the whole track.
Hiked the knoll once. Bloody good walk. Loved the knoll, loved Esperance and its beaches, loved the karri forests. Margaret River and its wankers and wineries, you can keep. Perth you can have too, sorry @gareth_oau
Our internet is delivered nightly via a huge USB drive, then flown back over next day.
It’s like looking at the stars , what you see actually happened millions of years ago
Accompanied by the strange paradox of receiving reciprocal weather ahead of us...
You forgot the schnapps LMB.
....and like all snow covered mountains we even had a mountain rescue...
I’ve hiked the Knoll - props to the old fella - there were people a lot younger than 82 who didn’t make it more than halfway up on the day I hiked it last year.
I wonder how he got lost. There is a very obvious path/trail. Even leaving the path it shouldn’t be too hard to find again.
too many snow cones???
Well as much as the Canadian half of me wants to laugh at the thought of a bunch of sandgropers hiking uphill in the dark to see a few cm of snow, the grownup part of me says, "Awesome! Onya for siezing the chance on something rare like this instead of watching on the 6 PM news. Dawn on a snow covered mountaintop is pretty special anywhere, let alone in WA.
Coldest morning in a year in WA this morning, and Dams fuller than they’ve been in decades.
Wish we could send some of it further to the East for our drought effected brothers.
Give it time, its WA, you'll need that water.
I agree, good on them for making the most of it must be passionate snow lovers, i recon perth would do well with a indoor slope like the ones with the Ski Treadmills, keep us going and get out skills up before the yearly ski trip
