The future looks feasible
Saturday - Sunday next week at resort level will be interesting. Might be a full reset if the temps stay high and it r**ns.
I'v often wondered why PB and TB don't cover Front Valley and Fri Flat respectively with something like they have at Tennis or Cricket grounds. I know it would be big, but stopping warm rain has gotta be worth it, especially in the marginal altitudes
Sorry where is Mountainwatch predicting snow for next week?? I am yet to see a link.
Good result for first night
and some first tracks - upper right
I was working outdoors in Hallam. 6 max and I had freezer gloves on.
There's nothing to see next week IMO.
Perhaps something the week after.
Sounds like an amazing event, thank you for sharing.
First fire of the year tonight. Only 2 weeks later than normal. Dunno what all the angst was about...
Not liking end of next week forecast for start of Winter in Canberra. 17 is ridiculous for June here when normal is around 12. Hope thats not the start of a warm June........8 for Perisher for winter is insanely hot and not even below freezing at night. Not like.
I reckon seasons almost done
Two systems already so the quota has been reached
The guns are currently on in Perisher FV. Looks like plenty of snow making opportunities this week IMO.
However, could be a complete reset next weekend with warm temps and r**n.
Yeah, I took my summer wax off my skis for start of season but I'm going to put it right back on cause its all over huh.....
Last June Perisher had 8 days in double figures up to 14.3 and only 1 max below 0. Looks pretty normal to me.
Cooma average minimum has been 0.6 below average for May according to BOM almanac. Max ave sux though.
LWT positioned better.
For surf in Vic and snow after a warm one or 2.
Thankfully this thread is almost redundant now
what do you mean? Autumn continuing this week coming with 6-8 maxs @ Perisher.....
BOM Victoria @BOM_Vic 53m53 minutes ago
Melbourne has recorded 57mm of rain so far in May, wettest month since July 2015! Much of Vic exceeding May averages
BOM always misses PV max temps and it very rarely has a zero or lower max at anytime of the year.The max temp may only be for half hour
I've noticed that actually. Often BOM says a top of 2 or something for PV but you sure as hell know cause you were there all day that it didn't get above -1.
I did say almost then we can start the Fantastic Super Winter Is Here thread.
Why are we calling June 1 the start of winter. IMO it starts about the 21st of June, inline with the northern hemisphere start of summer. Historical records show this as well with mean temps and snow depths. Winter will get here, it always dose regardless of the previous seasons.
Winter would've one and abot months by that measure
By August mid it's already sprinter
For those that believe in fairy stories.
Season Starter right there!
thats about right. but sping corn is still snow
GFS is so much better without the shackles of reality.
It saw this:
Bout 8 oclock on this chart (will update).
Fairytale goneskis for now I guess
No fairytale atm
R*** this coming weekend should not undo too much of the coming week's snowmaking and will actually help make it denser once it re freezes and form a better base. It's still early so nothing too much to worry about.
Just keep praying the waters in the Bight get cooler.
So where did that come from and poof! where did it go?
Can only mean 1 thing.... Sago
Really .? It seems that Thredbo management does not agree .
Long way out. @Claude Cat, maybe shuffle into the winter thread when it starts up if there's anything in it.
Looks warm @mick chopps
Why do you want the waters in the bight to get cooler?
That chart is a day early but it's right at the end of the model range (that I have access to). Plenty of cold air in that system, if it gets to the mountains.
But wait there is more.
Wandering Cool pool this week will deliver something interesting by the weekend. IMO. Even wet sage, will be uesfully above 1900 m.
Yes, has been on the last few EC runs.
Probably a 1600m+ event. I'll put up a thread shortly.
Actually, I might hold fire for a run or two. Not a lot of consistency this far out.
I am going to put something up for the 4-6th though.
Its still only 30th May. Still Autumn. .
They can deliver these wandering cool pools, just not much south of 1800 m IMO. Sometimes Perisher gets a snow shower from the NE.

Cows are unusually quiet this morning. Guess they're not impressed with -5°C either. #windellama #goulburn
Can't see any vibe until mid to late June
Not all that disappointing.
Will be nice to have some light winds and sunny days after what feels like a month of strong Nw-W winds.
Snow season starts July (I wont be up until August), so it can hold up for a few more weeks.
All this preseason natural and snow making is just for opening weekend/preseason marketing anyway.
Everyone is just hoping for a bumper season, like we do every year. Don't think there is anything wrong with a little bit of optimism.
So really Australia has 2 months of decent skiing a year? I usually get down in June for some cheaper accom and don't really mind if its pretty much snow making only to get some practice in before the real skiing starts later in July. Surely we can manage some snow making before season opening? I thought winter had started this past weekend here in Canberra but 17 next weekend and 8 degrees overnight is definitely not winter. Its warmer than May average even
