It looks like Mt Baw Baw, which is only 2.5hrs from Melbourne, has copped the full force of the recent snowfalls! Judging by the photos, there’s at least 10cm – pretty good for April!

Pics & video borrowed from Kahanamoku & Alex C on this ski.com.au forum thread – follow the link for more details.

Kahanamoku at Mt Baw Baw – “…a Frontside 180 indy on todays tank hill kicker.”

Telemark skiier at Mt Baw Baw – “…was pretty firm and almost felt groomed.”

Even the picnic table was happy about the pre-season snow

More early snow

A few snow-showers across the alps today. Perisher Blue cams show the best view of the results.

From the Perisher Blue site:

It’s snowing again. Snow started falling around 7.30 this morning and is getting heavier as the day goes on.
It feels like the middle of winter with wind chill down to -2.5°C at the bottom of Smiggin Holes and -6.7 at the botom of the Summit Chair. More snow is predicted over the weekend, let’s keep our fingers crossed.

The cold arctic wind over the last few days brought a suprising 15cm+ to the mountains! A significant fall for this early in the year, although it’s very unlikely to stick, but hey – any snow is good snow! It will at least help cool the ground for when the real snow comes. & remember – dont believe the ski resort hype – they will all be claiming its a sign of a “bumper season” but there is no way of knowing that, only time will tell…

If you want to get the best value sliding this season, dont forget to buy yourself a Thredbo Card. $42 joining fee gets you $12 off a daily lift ticket & every 8 days you get a free day, so it’s perfect for the “weekend warrior”. Details on the Thredbo site.

Front Valley, Perisher Blue, looking almost good enough for a slide!
