The river is raging. It’s not just the fallen rain, but the melted snow taken with it. Incredible volumes. We really need the temps to drop.
(Although the village tomorrow will be a skating rink if it freezes over - go carefully)

Just went for a walk around the the village - winds not that strong down low, but BOM still showing 40 knots up top.

Snow pack seems to be holding it's volume but rivers running underneath...

Most amusing, ain't no way I would venture out on the "snow" today.

Mostly you are a peddler of hyperbole, third hand gossip, invented conjecture and misinformation but hey, each to their own.
Wrong thread for this shit. Ffs

Hey, you’re on holidays! Why don’t you go and see Jock playing at Candlelight now instead of stressing over the ‘what ifs’? That’s what I’d be doing if I had the pleasure of being there :)

I’m not stressing at all. Just saying what I’m seeing.

I reckon if Thredbo hadn’t pre-announced things in anticipation of an Armageddon they expected, but didn’t arrive, they’d have opened based on the actual conditions on the ground.

As someone who has worked on lifts on a couple of different mountains, given the forecast and resultant weather I applaud Thredbo for making such a call. The ticket holder may go out for a couple of laps and then be able to go off inside to dry, the lifty though has to be out in the weather all day. On a day like this every piece of clothing gets wet and takes days to come good again, particularly gloves and beanies - even if you have a quiver, and because of this hypothermia is quicker to set in. Asides what others have said regarding snowpack being comprimised further with people on it and this decision enabling refunds, I fully support this decision based on staff safety - let alone being cold and miserable, and I will be signing up for another pass as soon as they let me.

It rains not uncommonly in Oz. We’ll lose a lot more ski days if that’s the reason to shut down lifts.

In the same rain PB and CP ran, and no one seems to be saying they were irresponsibly jeopardising staff safety.

I went out in it for a short walk down to the Rec Center, then Friday Flat and got the bus back to the post office then walked up the hill to home…drenched. That coat will be drying for days. My back pack was wet through so the paper on the inside with my shopping list was unreadable (it’s an Avi pack so fairly water resistant). You’re 100% on the money - working in this would’ve been a nightmare.

They were irresponsibly jeopardising there staff and volunteers! Lots of industries shut due to rain, ever see a building site?

Would have cost KT more to cancel today than open so I don’t see the issue.

A forecast of 150-200mm isn’t that common though. Thank fk.

Last time we had anywhere near that amount of rain the Village Road and Alpine Way at Wild Brumby where cut off by flood waters.

Prudent planning based on prior knowledge backed by refunds or credits as requested by the customer.

Fingers crossed this warm tropical gpir headed beast buggers off, a freeze sets in, snow falls and guns pump.

Burnt Downs, Blue Mtns, 1100M.
I went out in it for a short walk down to the Rec Center, then Friday Flat and got the bus back to the post office then walked up the hill to home…drenched. That coat will be drying for days. My back pack was wet through so the paper on the inside with my shopping list was unreadable (it’s an Avi pack so fairly water resistant). You’re 100% on the money - working in this would’ve been a nightmare.
Avi pack. Pull the trigger and it’s a personal floatation device.
Good thinking, nice call.

I’m not stressing at all. Just saying what I’m seeing.

I reckon if Thredbo hadn’t pre-announced things in anticipation of an Armageddon they expected, but didn’t arrive, they’d have opened based on the actual conditions on the ground.
You’ve spent the entire afternoon on the internet bitching about it, I absolutely don’t believe that you’re not stressing - all the researching, copying and pasting to find an angle to support your argument.

Like I said you’re on holidays, do holiday stuff. We understand you’re disappointed about losing a day skiing but you should be grateful you’re not going home with your week cut in half by Covid.

It's like someone holidaying on a tropical island and bitching about the cyclone that just slammed in. :rolleyes:
We had an earthquake, cyclone, flooding, covid, volcano and a Tsunami on our January holiday in Fiji,

Holiday before we were evacuated from Fitzroy due to a cyclone, and literally dropped on the wharf in Cairns.

We only had praise for the staff, tough decisions have to be made some times for the health and safety of everyone

At the last holiday you were busy dodging space debris.
