    Nice mate. What would you say you had fall, about 8cm or so? and does it look like there might be more snow or do you reckon the skies are clearing up etc?

    its been snowing all day today, can't accurately tell the snowfall, but yeah i'd say anywhere between 8-12cm. not enough to ski on yet but according to the reports some good snowfalls all weekend. hopefully more snow overnight. im itching to ride it!

    The snow on that table looks more like abt 5cm. Sure you're not being optimistic?

    Thanks for the pics posted.

    We will be going to the snow this year for the first time in 20 years (between 3rd to 10th August) & will be staying at Snowy Gums.

    The place looks absolutely brilliant with a bit of snow - I think we will be having a fantastic holiday this year.

    Now, just a little more snow please!!!!

    Thanks for the Astoria memories Used to work the bar there mid nineties with Heinz Richards the lodge manager. The restaurant was called The Waterfall restaurant (for obvious reasons)
    Damn Smiggs was funny back then. Peter and Don Flynn (Flinger) used to own/run Lodge 21 - Flinger had a million jokes under his belt. Hans and Margie Arnbusch at The Lodge, Siegrid and Colin at Snowline Shop, Joel and Belinda running the Smiggs hotel - Belinda pissed all season writhing on the pool table, the late night happenings at Willow, walking up the duplex late at night on full moon getting stark naked skiing back down, shagging in the Astoria hot tub, all the ski instructors living downstairs at the lodge......Doggie, Stoink, Henry......to name a few
    And 1995 had non-stop snow falling from July2 to Aug15.

    Thanks for bringing it back
