Ok punters... What are the calls for the spencers read. Closest call gets a gold star.
Current or say Wednesday next week?
The next published read at snowyhydro..should be 2 morrow from a read today. The more adventurous can have a punt at deep creek and 3 mile and be in the running for 3 gold stars.
Yeah around abouts 85
deep ck 46cm
3 mile 32cm
Lame. I want internet points.
1.3m wind drift. Okay I want to take this back, but it will be interesting to correlate wind direction and strength, precipitation measured at perisher, to determine wind drift
Precipitation (snow) + Wind drift - melt losses - compaction (density)
Its a great reference
Spencer's Creek is out in the open. Wind takes (a little) not delivers.
97 cm Spencers
I'll put myself out there......
Spencers ck 112.6 cm
98.8cm Spencers Creek - a very uneducated but hopeful guess!
what asl is spencers creek?
Its not actually at the creek as such.
Moreso up a bit near mt Gutherie?
Its a bunch of poles , you can see in summer
Three Mile Dam reading is already up at http://www.snowyhydro.com.au/water/snow-depths-calculator/ at 24.5 on Jun 25.
No reading for this week for the other two yet.
As to ASL for SC - the bridge itself is marked as 1730. So you would probably add another 30-50 up to the roadside below the hill they measure on and then add another 50 or so up the hill where they have the measuring poles. Giving you about 1800-1850m average for the slope.
They might not go out today due to the weather - they do skip some blizzard days. Might wait to Friday when the weather is expected to clear a bit. And could just as easily update again on Monday or Tuesday as they do odd reading from time to time.
And my prediction is 120+ depending on how they compensate for wind effects as it just blows like there's no tomorrow on that slope when the winds are like they are at present.
was going to offer lunch with @JoeKing as a prize..
Happy to go with the gold stars.
105cm Spencers. 55cm Deep creek, 30cm 3 mile.
The apx area of the measuring slope at SC is 36°25'32.82"S x 148°20'55.15"E - tried to make GE marker but gave up.
Just plug those coordinates into Google Earth and you'll zoom right - some nice pixs should also pop up with their icons to click on as well.
Do u wanna build a snowman....
Season predictions for Spencers Creek max snow depth in 2014
Happy to start off with usual wish for 300CM - reality though will probably be around 220 if the minty keeps coming.
I'm going with the #snow1981 vibe. 3.3m.
260 but an early august peak.
don't see many 100cm @ july on there
calling @Gerg for his predictor..
Just throwing it loosely out there I think we'll get to 3.75m at Spencer's creek and I will get ultimate value on my season pass.........
103cm for spencers
Deep Creek is in 58.1cm. @shauno was conservative,
@Nowada gets the first gold star.
send it back by tuesday.
..folk may want to rethink their SC stab.
If I'm closest, I'm changing my Sig from Love Machine, to 2014 Snowmageddon Champ.
if deep creek is just under 2 foot, I reckon you are well underdone..
I've run the figures. Statistically in the last 10 years, Deep Creek averaged 60% of Spencers Creek. So I'm counting on statistics to get me over the line.
101cm at Spencers.
Hope we end up like 1990 with 190cm by early July. Looking a good chance based on this week.
I going at 93.2cm
Something to remember Deep Creek and Three Mile Dam (24.5cm) are up the northern end of the Kosciuszko National Park, im thinking there was much more snow around the same elevation in the southern end of the park
This Thursday (26th June): 117cm
Next Thursday (3rd July): 207cm
Peak (early August): 307cm
All Spencers Creek.
Fizzer, 9cms sc tomorrow and 45 cm peak depth July sic weekend
Hving been there yesterday i was going to say around 60cm and got a real shock when the original posted number was only 25cm.
I'll say 132cm for Spencers Creek. But really depends when they measure or measured it. Yesterday or this morning.
55 - 60cms.
there has been (roughly) a 30cm increase on the ground at the Blue Cow snow fence. Its altitude is between 1880 & 1890m - roughly 50 to 60 metres higher than the Spencer's creek snowcourse. Although its facing north while the spencers creek snowcourse faces south east.
in June 2000 when they measured between 70 and 77cms at Spencers Creek there was more than double the amount of skiable terrain in all the resorts than there is now - and that was with far less snowmaking.
Taking a while for them to update? The suspense is killing me!
Perhaps the survey team keeps getting caught in neck-deep snow drifts
Surely they will be posting todays depth. And we'll all be a mile short. 67mm of precip in last 24hrs.
I read on the BC report.
50-60cm in exposed areas.
80-100 in cross loaded
120 plus in lees.
