Seasonal Snow Stats

News No Comments »

NSW resorts now have a base of 107cm, & Vic resorts around 60cm. Historically a good early base indicates a long season, so its all systems go for season 2005 – bring on the next dump Huey!

Compare seasonal snow depths at the Snowy Hydro website, & see snow depth data from 1965 to the present in this pdf file.

The low pressure system (gotta love ‘em!) over S-E Aus. is stalling, which should mean even more snow on the mountains tonight & tomorrow – with snow falling as low as 800m (ie. the Blue Mountains!).

This week the snow gods have already given us 10-15 cm every night since Sunday, so by the time it clears up on the weekend, the few lucky sods who get up the mountains will have a beuatiful powder-topia all to themselves! So book your accom now, & take some photos for the LPL!

The infra-red Satellite animation is looking amazing – that low is sucking up moisture like crazy!

Here’s a few photos from around the resorts today – they enjoyed a cold sunny winters day while that phat low builds momentum for the big Wednesday night dump!

Juicy low with lots of cold moisture in it – the speckled clouds are full of snow!

Thredbo – some dude getting air at what looks like the Bluff.

Thredbo – nice freshies at the Bluff – must be a staff member, because the Crackenback lift isnt open yet.

Thredbo – Lower Supertrail freshies.

Perisher Blue – a lone boarder somewhere near the Freelander mid-station.

Perisher Blue – snowguns going full bore in the sunshine.

Mt. Hotham – icicles on the snowcam are truly a beautiful sight!

It’s Dumping!

The Ozzie Alps are blanketed in fluffy white goodness, with an average of 35cm falling in the last 36 hours! Most resorts have limited lifts open at this stage, but with more snow forecast we should see the resorts in full operation by next week, & a decent base ready for the next dump due around the 25th :)

Lovely to see the Ozzie Alps with some icing on top at last! Up to 30cm of snow is predicted for this week – hopefully this will form a base & the next big system due around the 4th of July will give us a decent blizzard worth driving up the hills for. Keep an eye on Snowatch & the 6 day outlook for details.

Here’s a few pics from todays snowcams.
