Tbh the riding would be so so...like July 2005 easterly snow...so ssssloooow.
I have enjoyed being on the ground in jindabyne for this ENE feed. You can really gauge what moisture is hitting the resort's unlike the SW feed which can be dry in jindy and pukage up the hill.
At the moment its just spitting so I wouldn't think much going on up the hill for now or in the next hour or so.
Yeah precip eased off at PB.
Latest from v8..."Scottish mist"
So is that the end of it or is there more to come?
More around 4am or so
I will let you know if I hear any rain on the roof. I may be up at 4am as our 2 week old may get me up.
there is lots of precipitation, but it's all 200 km north of the snowys, judging from he radar, will be interesting to see what accumulation there is in the morning, seeing that temperatures were marginal at times.
Looks like there might have been a lot of clear wet snow washing away the white stuff on lower thredbo.
Yup, no gains down low but up high will be sweet.
Got really hammered by this one all night here at Ulladulla. Little sleep . Still pssing down and blowing something serious. Would have been a long night for SES crew I suspect. Trees down, ground waterlogged...happy for it to head out to sea now it's given us a base again ! Cheers Donza and all for the commentary.
Light rain now in jindy. Temps still ok for snow above 1600m at the moment. Wouldn't think more than a couple of cms today though.
Did thredbo really only get 3 cm?
Thredbo reporting 25cm in last 24hrs on Facebook.
snowing at Perisher.
wind has died down
looks like the low's whip-tail is dragging across and bringing up some moisture
Couple of centimetres for Hotham from it
convection being aided by sun up i'm thinking.
It must have rained overnight at Thredbo - cam shows bare grass at the Crackenback lift base.
There's something wrong with the Thredbo report - there are 8 lifts running and lots of trails open.
There is, they have changed the location and structure of their data feed and I am in the process of working through it now. The old feed location has only partial information and some of it appears wrong. Working on it right now.
So thredbo flat out lying on Facebook. Didn't take them long. 5cm reported on their website.
I took the weekend off surfing but monitored the radar all weekend, it seemed as if it didn't really stop from Sat onwards for you guys. South of the Bay not so bad.
Yesterday afternoon, the site said 25cm, now it says 5cm, just depends on which 24 hr block they are using, Im guessing midnight to midnight
Don't get your knickers in a twist
Wish someone @telecrag I'm lookin at you, would go wipe the lens on the basin cam
Sure, why don't they start quoting last season while they're at it. The village shows basically nothing and rain, they are being deliberately deceptive. General punters deserve to know, look how many are being sucked in on their fb.
Gee whiz.... I'm shocked.
mid station tables
doesn't look wet
Ah sorry didn't catch the fb thing I don't do fb so wouldn't know, I tend to look at the cams, and BOMs rainfall totals, both of which are not manipulated for commercial purposes.
You know they are just trying to troll you with their calculated under AND over reporting.
Check the time signatures on the web cams is helpful to interpret the advice.
smitty is just trolling Thredbo
Sorry dude, back in town, but will head up and give it a wipe tomorrow. Typically I come back when it snows, but I dont think I missed anything really spesh. Will be nice later in the week with some manmade over it. Better than a mate who never made it out of Christchurch before having to head back.
Thredders looks wet, and I notice yellow jackets in the report from yesterdays "powder".
On the topic of reporting, I love the place, and only see it through my rosy tints. The media mob may be like that, with the added incentive of being paid to love it too. Experienced people will always know, is the punter being overlooked? Todays report could either show peeps skiing on the best on offer, or clumps of grass at the bottom of ST. Which makes more sense?
This snow fall is the foundations of a base.
Its great because there was no wind so the snow should settle everywhere and on all aspects above 1650 m.
The long range forecast at 200hrs looks good for some pow on Ozzy corn.
Because of the lack of wind and cold temps there was a thick layer of hoar over all the off-piste cover before this snowfall hit.
I would be really interested to see if there has been any avalanche activity up high on the main range, as it seems like this could be a pretty rare and maybe dangerous snowpack for nsw .
On the small chance any bc skiers trigger anything in the next week, I want to be on record...
I also noted that in BC chatter thread. It looked purdy, and skied quite well, but if you were NH you would be shitting yourself.
IMO the new snow may have been wet and heavy enough to consolidate, but until I have a look its just a guess.
Looks pretty good! Better than I expected.
Yeah it did, didn't it! Very sparkly.
Agreed. It would be good if we could teleport to the upper slopes of Twynam and dig a pit.
NH = ?
NH = from the Northern Hemisphere, I assume. Where buried hoar frost layers are a major cause of avalanches.
was thinking it would have that wettish sheen and wet branches
always nice to see snow stuck to vertical surfaces
frozen mizzle at Perisher at moment i've been told
Look for weakness in the snowpack, take a shovel, dig a pit.
If in doubt, don't risk it!
Mate this is true for me as well, we skied last weekend at Merritts, was all good, had a great time actually, back down next weekend for 10 or so days. As a sailor and a skier, it doesn't matter where you are in the world, you are indulging in weather dependent activities, ya make to most of it. the more you go the more chance of getting one or two of those rare "good" days
On that analogy .... the tides out on Friday flat
I observe that a lot of us are wasting time, watching and praying for snow on this forum, rather than working
And I did like that analogy
see through powder at perisher
words to the effect of...cloud becomes rain becomes sleet becomes snow.
