    So a picture tells a thousand words:

    There's a 100% margin of error within the width of the Stake itself. Is this 11 cm of new snow or only 5?

    Who was the genius who though putting a measurement ruler on a raised platform strongly affected by the prevailing westerly flow would be a good idea? 10 cm of new snow overnight...

    Wonder how long it will last in that location?

    Anyone know where it actually is? My daughters want to go see it next week when we're up there.

    It was posted in another thread, but if you go to the top of the brumby t, turn right, and then head down into the woods to skiers left it’s in there somewhere.

    The stake needs some boundaries
    He is getting away with far too much

    The trees to the skiiers right of Bulwheel run would have been a better spot.

    They need a few of them!
