Wow, Candlelight doing an amazing deal on beers atm, getting rid of the stock they bought in for winter, 20 500ml bottles for $60, get on it anyone who can! Just saw it on Jindy NB.
Saw that and pounced. Surely this will make lockdown more bearable...

I am surprised given there's still over 3 weeks to the typical end of season weekend.

I'm curious if Thredbo has hed less snow than typical, or does it look like this as they havement bothered to maintain with mnmade and grooming, and this would otherwise by normal?

If they don't make snow on FF there is very little snow on FF.

I believe FF is below the natural snow line so unless they are pumping the man made and spreading it around it goes away very quickly

Looked pretty much exactly the same this time last year

Very standard. Pre snow making, there would be only grass in mid Sept,

True. I remember High Noon's lower section being bare. Catching the Merritts double chair out of the gully, kind of makeshift mid station on load.... skis on shoulders, ready to run off the chair at VT

The melt has been unusually pronounced this year, both in late August and September. Combination of very warm temperatures, wind and some rain. It is not just down low either, really noticeable up high now as well.
Last year was the fastest I can remember, the pack was isothermic and just never froze up. Even faster than the thick dust years.

It is interesting as


I think this year is similar, straight from winter to summer
I used to love spring skiing while I was at school. I remember plenty of springs where Snowgums was loading at Bunny Walk and Crackenack/Kosci were loading at Meadows / Mid or Kareela. Our perceptions hae been altered by 17-19 being good seasons and modern snow making and snow farming.

I concour, doesn't appear to get a chance to really corn up. I recall clockwork days of sparkling corn harvest.

Envy those that can use it! Be awesome, literally no one, I mean I was there on a weekday, when you still had Canberra, and there was no one.

Enjoy it, most locals I know bought a P pass, even ones that skied Thredbo for 30 years, they were so pissed off, I reckon FV will get a workout, while those lucky enough at Thredbo will be skiing fresh cord all day!

I notice they mention top to bottom on the super trail in the Insta post. How is the lower ST holding up? All the cams on that side seem to be switched off.

Skiable at the moment but narrow. Will not need many people or much rain.
