10 cents for the person who can guess what level the Marketing Stake is reading right now.
Yeah drive from Cooma airport was less than ideal
Looks like a band incoming on the radar within next hour or so too
was going to post similar - brown as in Dubbo today also.
Indeed, someone needs to tell them that a light smear of vaseline over the whole stake will fix that problem right up
Very dark in Sydney but I think it's dust rather than cloud. Extremely strong gusts atm.
Cold, windy, Dusty thru Midura, it's coming
Light snow on and off this afternoon at Hotham, although when I left at 4 pm it just puking.
Still puking at Dinner Plain - they've probably picked up another 5-10 cm.
Absolutely nuked from about 330 onward
Lapping an empty federation bowl til close was unbelievable.
All tracks from the morning filled in. Morning was quite heavy but late afternoon was very light.
Slab-o-meter is gone*
*deck was bare this morning
Dry snow North Perisher. Been snowing all afternoon...
Buller road is absolute chaos.
Several cars off the road down at Chalet Creek.
Some sort of crash between Skating Rink and the Village.
Snow down to 1km after Chain Bay 1.
10-15cm of snow where we are currently stuck halfway up from the carparks to the village.
Hopefully my mate was in front of all that.
Driven down today for IS
Traveling down the Hume, temp has gone from 32 leaving Sydney to 13 degrees in an hour. Passing pheasants nest currently.
*edit raining and windy AF
Safe travels, everyone!
12-15cm of fresh according to Perisher's marinated steak.
Sydney Obs Hill hit 28.5C at 5pm this arvo.
Really hit the coast about an hour ago.
From boardies n flanno to full winter kit and scramble to get the fire lit before it really kicked.
After sleet on the way in from Cooma to Adaminaby this arvo, it cleared up about 4pm. Now however we've got big fat flakes starting to settle at Lake Eucumbene. As night settles in, water starting to freeze up on surfaces, so expect the snow to accumulate overnight.
Solid band on Sat pic NSW bound
Sat pic has looked relentless all day.
Wind big time on the Illawarra Escarpment dust bushfire smell and getting colder.
Safely up the mountain and parked.
Snowing quite nicely now at Buller.
I reckon a solid 15cm.
Some nicer pics:
Can only think of one time the Buller road was as scenic as this when going up or down.
So this walkway at Buller was clear this morning:
Shaping up as the best Buller system this year. Enjoy!
Came in hard on arvo XC w dorg, at least another 10cm, we had fun.
Some more pics from around the lodge
Hotham rd takes another victim
I observe snow and sleet falling at Bullocks Flat
Performance driver in a commie ... good thing it was on the safe side
Mixed bag of wintery mix at Island Bend 1430m just doqn from Blue Cow & Guthega. Temps have been variable, so too the propensity for flakes to stick - on & off. Much precipitation but little net accumulation thus far.
. . . and now starting to accumulate. Temp -0.2.
They really had to didn't they
Left Sydney 4pm, car read 32C. By the time I got to within 30km of Goulburn it read 5C.
Not that in Sydney anymore ! Cooled down very fast
Probably closer to 20cm now:
I cleared the smaller gaps to nothing at around 11pm. Here's them now:
Look about 5 cent ish over night? Maybe a bit more. Agree with CM, easy 20 so far.
Lake Eucumbene and Mt Cobrabold. A light dusting here by the lake, settled snow seems a few hundred metres higher.
Wild in the carpark, looks like 20+, still snowing.
westerlies at Buller.............
Falls this morning - about 25-30 cm
I’m observing the wind and visibility at Perisher is enough to grab a coffee at Brunellis and jump in the car and drive home.
Ditto Guthega. Short day pethaps? This is the view toward Main Range!
I observe you've made a major error in judgement.《jk》 Sun Valley and across to Mt P is epic. Wait for the sun to poke through and untracked powder everywhere.
No, the coffee was great. Plus, I can ski any day I like or not.
Will head up to Thredbo tomorrow . Monday heading out on the main range.
Observed pretty big avalanche in Coles Bowl Hotham, everything is a bi slabby
I bet you don't.
35-50 knots and white out conditions Monday AM.
