By all accounts it snowed steadily all of yesterday. Certainly possible.
One thing is forsure, the Main Range is LOADED. With over half a metre last week and up to a metre this week, this weekend would have to be one of the best back country weekends you could ever ask for.
Off perisher Website
14 Jul 2016 5cm
13 Jul 2016 50cm
12 Jul 2016 12cm
Completely plausible - not sure where your looking.
Day of days 2016
Hrmm Perisher's website... Dated today.
Argh yes, you're right. My apologies. 5cm reported in the last 24hrs. Mustn't have updated when I checked.
There be plenty of space in there for everyone to get their stash....
Indeed and be a weekend for skins out back with that fat high.Enjoy .
Seems like a lot more than 9cms at Falls Creek, and it is still falling! I thought that it was supposed to stop? Not complaining, still light and fluffy stuff drifting down!
Blue skies, stiff breeze and cold. -6 and windchill -17. Thredbo dressed in all her finery this morning.
Stirling reporting another 10cm. Summit and Stanley on standby while they assess the Avi hazard.
Chains to all vehicles and wait at the entry gates for snow clearing.
Day of the year..... And I'm stuck at work!!!!!
Two foot storm
May have underestimated the stiff breeze. Gusts ripping along the Valley. Rug up.
Buller and stirling cams showing some fat flakes if im not mistaken??????
Report says it's still snowing at Stirling. I do believe you're not mistaken.
I didn't think there would be that much moisture.
Was it that cut-off that developed Tuesday morning that triggered more precip.?
Heavenly Valley. Not shit.
Quoted, so i can like it again!
Davenport cam again. The 10cm looks credible. Also plenty windy.
Well, back at work after an exciting 2 days. Unfortunately no photos due to Apples amazing battery when cold but Diamantina Hut doorway went from being near concrete on Tuesday around midday to well over knee deep yesterday morning, with wind shifts and not ever properly being in the lee!
Hopefully hopefully things stay cold until the weekend. Hopefully!
i observe another day with no work being done.
Height + WNW inbound Vs Aspect IMO.
I'd really like to know what this means:
Hotham could have reported the same.
But isn't in NSW so credibility.
Thats got me I am cancelling my Thredbo week and going to Hotham because they have more credibility baha
A question for Thredbo marketing dept. I am a little under-qualified to answer.
...I just board the stuff man...
I'd go there for the better terrain myself....
Seriously, would be 50-100 leeward there too. But they just measured actual snowfall.
Thredbo had as much in the village as Hotham did on the mountain, and it's pretty well understood that the top of Thredbo squeezes out almost double the moisture compared to the village below it.
They're all full of it from time to time
If you worry about the reported snowfall amounts you've got deeper issues.
Playing join the dots again? That's Rupert media style analysis.
I'd hardly call a minute observation being 'worried about reported snowfall amounts'
Just interesting reporting methods.
By all means thredbo got what it did.
'between 50 and 100 cm'
Knowing Hotham like I do id expect they got 'between 20 and 150cm'
depending on aspect.
Would have been entirely reasonable to mention that in their report too.
yep......there would be zero cover at loch carpark, all down in the canyon
So Hotham got 150cm in 24 hrs gotta be some sought of record
Eh? Are you Rupert too?
Hotham got what it reported.
Knowing the terrain that translates to what I said. Interesting they don't report it that way.
Wind scour = Leeward Wind loading.
Based on the way they usually report, it's pretty clearly them referring to 50cms at village level, and 100cms up top.
And I don't doubt it.
i observe it feels every bit of the current reported -5.4 / -15.4 windchill at Thredbo Top Station. Wind is brutal but snow is so good. I also observe that the Frostbite Wagyu Burger is outstanding when tucked into the snug out of the wind!
Spencers Creek: 122.1cm July 14
With the weather changing will it create more avvy dangers with all the new snow?
I am not Avie qualified but from my point of view given we've had two significantly different weather conditions/patterns between last week and this week it has me thinking, absolutely a high risk.
Wasn't there a bit of hail in there as well, just for good measure?
Dig your pits, kids.
Same i am no expert but the rain made it quite a slick surface. May have been different out bc but all this fresh snow could creat some dangerous havoc for the unprepared.
it was this time, 2 years ago, that 2 experienced boarders died on bogong after a big dump of snow on an iced up, slurpee base, convex triggered
Some members on here mentioned Thredbo spent several hours yesterday doing Av clearances so certainly a good indication of the instability of layers.
Stay on topic.
I observed Wind Slab warnings for the NSW backcountry where issued yesterday.
.Snow conditions will defiantly vary a lot between now and Sunday with low temps today/tomorrow followed by rapid warming. Defiantly need to treat the snow pack with a touch more respect than usual in the immediate future. Decent slabs forming forming at Hotham above tree line.
