Ha, that's awesome!
Here you go.... had to ! About 5 cms generally. Some much deeper drifts. Was melting quick.
What's next, a white Christmas at Perisher?
It has happened before. I have had snow between Xmas and New Year a couple of times.
Last one that I experienced was Christmas 1999.
Looks like next weekends front will be a white start to summer.
Guess what else. @Ted Harper. Caught the wildlife at PV on the hop....was snowing steadily circa 6 pm. Flurries as far down as Wilson’s.
That's nearly the size of a Hare!
Shrunk in the cold.
I fixed the photo for you
Shhhhe, it was a bitter freezing wind through the valley this morning.
headed back to Sydney just before the weather closed in
Here you go buddy! Summer .....
Cheers. SM.. Enjoy Gutheries
More to come based on the cold & stormy night here in ADL.
Couple of pics from this afternoon. Snow is melting fast as you’d expect for Summer.....
The NSW Environment Department has been convicted for a second time of polluting a waterway that runs through Perisher Ski resort.
The Department, which operates a sewage plant that services the resort, has been found guilty of releasing aluminium into Perisher Creek at levels known to cause toxicity to a range of aquatic organisms.
Last year the Land and Environment Court also convicted the department of releasing elevated levels of nitrogen and ammonia into the creek.
It pleaded guilty and was fined more than $160,000.
Beats me how so much aluminium gets into the sewarage system !
It is added as part of the treatment process. There was a mea culpa ad in the SMH a couple of days ago that explained it.
You prisher skis eating too many cans.
Think its in the compound used as a floculant.
That poo works is really difficult to run. With all of the day visitors the ratio of urine to poo is too high and the water is cold. Because of that the Park regularly gets fined because outputs are not within standards.
The lesson is if you're a day visitor to Perisher hold onto your poo until you get to Perisher. That way the poo works can treat the effulent more easily. Even more important running the poo works is the biggest bill paid for by your park entry, so if you don't make your morning deposit at Perisher you're not getting value for money out of your park entry.
When the load on the plant is light, you don't feed the bacteria enough, and it dies off.
Then you get a busy day and the existing bacteria cannot cope. Nutrients remain in the effluent. Water obscurity suffers. Plant doses additional Alum to clump the particulates together, so the filters remove them more efficiently.
Alum levels rise.
It's a loose - loose situation. You either get fined for dirty water, or excess Alum.
That could be embarrassing with some of the drivers on icy days
Imagine the outrage if the same sort of hing happened at a mine site - say during a massive rain event.
Absolutely. They would be ragged before a court and fined. Lucky that didn't happen to Perisher ... wait a minute ...
Fortunately our law doesn't discriminate.
I'm talking people being morally outraged by any incident that occurs to a large corporate - whether its through negligence or dealing with something that is hard to control, as opposed to NPWS which the same critics of mines would all know and love - and be happy to accept a logical explanation from.
An example could be people morally outraged about mine water releases which may have been necessary to prevent more serious consequences such as dam failures.
My recollection from the ad was that it was a relatively minor breach that lasted, at most, a few hours. I reckon your imagined mines do that sort of thing on a pretty regular basis, and we never hear a peep.
Adani says hi. Remeber when Adani was fined recently and everyone was using as justification to cancel approval of thier mine. Noone calling for closure of KNP.
This seems to be a tad confused.
So show that you give a s&%t by giving them a s&%t?
I usually have my coffee when I get there, just sayin’
SHort memory old boy?
For the old bloke with a short memory:
THIS IS NOT THE THREAD FOR BITTER ARSE POLITICS
Sweet fanny only please
My shit doesn't stink. Not sure how it tastes though.
No. It's the idea that a national park could be closed that is confused.
CHarlotte Pass was evacuated (essentially closed down) mid ski season about 10 years back when the STP failed.
Almost happened again this year..... caused witch hunt of all lodges for bleach in kitchens etc.....culprit was spa in one of the resort's own lodges
I seem to recall that it was thought to be sabotage by a disgruntled employee?
Flew past yesterday afternoon and I always try to spot the white stuff so grabbed a couple of pics.
Not sure where to post but figured this thread would serve as its sort of Perisher
Gotta be honest and say I was surprised there was as much white as there was given I know its been hot etc.
Has been snowing weekly since october. There was 30cm last week.
Great angle on that pic.
Yeah, I knew that as I am enough of a snow tragic to keep a rough eye on whats happening and you only have to look up to see how white it was early December as evidenced by @SMSkier pics (Falls looked the bomb that system!!). I guess with all the fire and weather (hot/dry etc.) reporting for "Sydney" I thought most of the base/drifts would have been gone so was surprised it was so noticeable.
And yeah I thought the angle was pretty good showing Jindabyne and the Valley behind etc.
No way. Have you visited the toilets in the Perisher Centre after 8am? Plus I find it very tricky in ski boots.
Oh c’mon...you crap in your ski boots? I’m going single in future.
You know you want to tele.
Lucky you’re not female then! I guess the loo is much further down for you though
Your using the wrong toilet.
well this thread has gone to shit hasn't it
