Phone call from someone on Bogong today. I guess that is the place to be at the moment. Still good cover and good conditions. Fairly patchy on BHP but still enough if you are keen. The road still has a few good drifts on it south of Mt. Cope track to Langford West last I saw it (Wednesday) but 40 plus mm of rain the other night should have weakened it. No plans to open it this month as yet.Surely someone is still out there pounding the BC, any pics/reports?
And was out at Kozi today, the loss of cover over the last week is startling. This view is to Twynam.
The slopes below the Kozi cornice are very close to vertical now, so there is the usual but more of it cornice collapes happening.
Did some turns off Kozi in cloud and did not look back. Found another slope on the way back for some turns, very hard work in the afternoon slooop. But very satisfying.
Would have to be post 1956, as Kunama is pencilled in as destroyed on the sketchStab in the dark.. i would say, late 1950s, or 1960s. and some of it is just dreams, on the part of the drawer/painter.
It does show the Thredbo to Charlotte Pass lift as 'projected' which will help date it.Would have to be post 1956, as Kunama is pencilled in as destroyed on the sketch
Quite some melt since I was there on last day of Thredbos ski season.Dropped by Cootapatamba Hut, did not go inside.
And got up into the Ramsheads, there is a lot of snow up there, I ws surprised. But most of the bowl will be cooked out over the next couple of days. This would be the North Ramshead.
Is the seasons closure gate open by accident....I assumed it was still locked?certainly if you can gain the first little Saddle by vehicle it puts you well up on this approach.Seasons Closures are not usually open till the Thursday preceding the Melb Cup?Even Mr T has seen the light and has got himself something with 4x4 capability.Very nice pics of your snow trip.The new forest road up to Granite Flat Turn Off and further to The Hollow(where old track used to come out)is very negotiable with a good surface and drainage.
Bon Accord Spur foreground making it look a lot snowier than everywhere else
I've recently undergone a mid life crisis and finally got a big 4WD so I took the opportunity to scope out granite flat spur
This makes it look way snowier than it is, I just framed it for effect to try and looks badass!!
For anyone trying to get up granite flat, there's a log on the track but a mate of mine is heading up friday with a chainsaw so it should be gone by then. It seemed to be towards the end of the track in any case and there were a couple of places to park off the track if you possess some advanced driving and bush parking techniques.
