    there could be a fantastic drop in the next couple of days but it could be gone in three weeks. it's way too early to predict that far ahead.

    Hi Putin, Snownami was never going to deliver any snow to Baw Baw today but tomorrow and especially early next week could be 30cm-40cm. Then on the following weekend maybe 20cm which would be enough to set you up for the 31st. The truth about Baw Baw is you only need 30cm prior to your trip for the mountain to be open.

    Cams show the road outside the pub nice and white this morning, so it has started.

    In short, no body has any idea what the snow will be like at Baw Baw in 3 weeks.

    So does that mean it's looking good for the 31st? So many more runs open than there was last week

    You should be fine. Another strong SW front coming in on Sunday with plenty of moisture, so Baw Baw should (hopefully!) do very well. Just hope that there isn't too much melt due to the warmer front and rain during Wednesday/Thursday.

    Booked for 2 nights next week, can't wait. That should equate to 3 days skiing. Hoping the forecasts come good.

    Went up on Tuesday with a friend and his daughter. Great day! Snow was firm and fast at the start, softening in the afternoon. Excellent cover and no crowds. Sunny and a bit windy in the morning with cloud building in the afternoon.

    sounds good to me!
    Does anyone know how strict the alpine backpackers are on the "no alcohol in room" rule?

    In all seriousness though, is it just something they put on there for legal reasons or will they be actively on the lookout?
