We had snow in the foothills here in ADL. Boss showed pics of 1/2 cm over his roof & garden this am.

So there may be some freshies on the way.:)

There was snow (see Perisher thread) but cams not showing a material difference. Maybe they don't update as often in off-season, don't know...

Anyone been out to club lake and or northcote recently and got any pics?
Trying to decide if i should head up for the long weekend..
Still heaps and heaps of snow out there last week. Rode the whole way back to the crossing apart from two short patches of grass. Didn't take any pics unfortunately.

This was this morning. Had to walk most of the way out there and back. I skied Lee which was really nice after last nights freeze / thaw. Nothcote is looking patchy. Club Lake shoots still looking good. Clouds came over as I was leaving.

Anything out Hotham way left, any one been out recently?
Yesterday:
There was still 2 top to bottomish runs into heavenly. Decent 2 lines from international down and through avalanche gulley.
International will be rideable for another week, heavenly will be done very soon. Unfortunately we didn't head any further than heavenly, but I would assume there is a drift on the back side of mt loch.
Looking down international
Looking up international
Looking further down in international, couldn't be bothered with the extra hike
Still some coverage in ft

Did you get your self some nice turns?


Yes quite nice considering it's november!


Here's some Bogong photos of mine from the last few weeks. The first batch are from the 21/10 and the second batch is from wednesday (1/11 :))


Cairn Gully and summit chutes (Feathertop in the background) on one of the nicest spring days in memory. Fat snowpack. Minimal sharks. No wind (almost too hot though!). Soft hero snow. The crowds were a little high though :D... me and a buddy, and a telemarker camped on the summit.

Please tell Parks about the dingo, date, time & location.
Yep, will do. Never seen one up that high before.

Update - gave them a call with details. Told them I've got pics and videos of the pup, so the ranger might give me a call back for more info.

I saw what I’m pretty sure was a dingo just after the Wilsons chain bay, so same local. I was surprised how excited Parks were when I let them know.

Interesting - adult or pup? The one I saw was heading in roughly that direction.
