No going out there with a long ruler
217cm. Riding the last few days it seems deep.
Could compact a bit though between now and reading.
Hmm - perhaps a firmly planted ski pole? On second thoughts... Anyway, I'm revising my estimate down to 197cm - a few warm days predicted this week.
I'll downgrade to 213.
Not enough snow today or predicted for next few days
Any way we can get this turned into a predictions thread and create a new obvs thread, in recognition of how poor the new snowy hydro website is?
185cm..............yay i won!!
Wow! It would be interesting if they gave us a reading after the rain deluge finished last week so we actually knew how much blizzard of oz 2.0 brought us.
I'm guessing not 20cm
Cmon people save your dishes for later. I'm interested in seeing a conversation about this shock measurement. I'm guessing the 145mm of r..n was really killer. Especially even at 1830m
Hate it when I'm right
Is it officially recorded as 185cm or is someone taking the P!$$
Yep 185cm Aug 23 measurement as per website.
The 22cm net gain could be due to the big rain event occuring on Wed 16th Aug.
Aug 15th SC reading: 163.8 cm
Aug 16th PV AWS recorded 145.6mm of rain, estimate 50cm reduction in snow depth.
August 17-22 approx 70+cm of snowfall, bringing it to 185cm.
Just wind blowing snow to low spots. Makes you appreciate the 3m years.
but what time was it taken and what colour pants were they wearing ?
Peak depth reached?
Most likely, but last year....
Yes unless we get a substantial Sept event of at least 60 CM in next 3 weeks
Do you work in Traffic prediction modelling agency for toll road business cases?
The spencers reading is useful, but has its limitations when trying to correlate to the resorts. Sometimes the spencers reading seems unusually low compared to what you see in the resorts, sometimes high.
Bottom line is that in the resort (perisher) there is vastly more snow now than when we had the 179cm reading. There is an excellent base, that will last through to the october long weekend.
Exactly. Depends on which direction the wind comes from at the peak of snow fall too. Not sure what is the optimal direction to build base depth at Spencer's though? I imagine it would take a big dump of heavy snot in low winds to see a large increase there.....
Its a SE facing slope so NW would be ideal.
So it is officially 185 cm.
Thats not too bad when you consider that the wind blow has been minimal this year. The top of Guthrie's had more snow last year, but the back of Cauthers had almost none.
I think the 101 cm recorded at Deep Creek is very impressive.
Still a bit to go to get near 2000, but very similar to 2004, 2008, 2010, 2014
Still a few surprises to be had this season. This is out first real flat LWT period.
the wave of goodness will come back.
The Corners can go back to work for a few more weeks.
Furthermore the season is most similar to 1992 but still requiring a Spring Surge.
Potential Spring Surge in the LWT
I'm always more interested in the Deep Creek reading
That's where the action is with the rising snow-line along with 3 mile dam
And the measurement is in...
189.4cm, so maybe this is our peak? Hopefully next weeks snow will push it above 2m!
So the reading has gone up in the last week. Has it snowed since the last measurement was taken??
Perisher reported 13cm since last recording
Yes, 10-15cm at perisher on the weekend
However, there have been several occasions when the measurement has gone up when there has been no snow. I suspect there is probably 10% +\- measurement error or so.
If next week delivers as per the current forecast - I'd say it's odds on to break 2m with next week's reading!
Ok, I'll do it. 3m.
Very possible. Extremely excited we have got to this point.
It's in......... 189.4. Gonna have to wait till next week to see the 2.xx reading.
2.56mt this time next week.
Rounded that's 3m!
i've constantly overstated this season so i'm gonna go conservative this week, 230
either way.. it's been a very good late season. i can't complain about the quality of snow under foot.
Thursday weeks reading is the key 3m is now possible
Not quite ready to put in a guess yet, but I dont think it will top 3m if the measurement is taken this Thursday. It's a possibility if Friday / Saturday go well.
305cm after this system. So this 305cm is for the 14th September
