29/7/15 - 11:07amHaven't seen much reports about the last few days, must be good. Time for me to get into it. Will probably head up Sunday (small lull in weather) and stay for a few days. If I don't get a ride with someone else, then I'll have room in the car for anyone wanting a ride up on sunday.
28/7/15 - 5:10pmMates who were up on the weekend estimated 30 cm fell over the weekend. They got back down the Harriettville side early Sunday afternoon.

Quoting Cuppa:Leave some for me..........some freshies for when I get there on the 9th would be good Birthday is 11th, so here's hoping for a mega dump leading up and bluebird on the 11th. Happened that way in 2012 I think it was
28/7/15 - 4:37pmI am pretty sure it has opened previously with less than 1 metre reported snow depth, 2015 cant be that special. It always depends on the snowfalls, wind direction etc, as it needs to fill in a fair bit down the bottom
28/7/15 - 2:43pmOrchard opening tomorrow.

Quoting Snorkler:Personally I think the road crew are doing a pretty good job this year and having to drive up most days all year round have seen it all. The hill is good nic guys- get away from your computers and get into it. Weekends are the best. :mad:

Quoting Farkle Minkus:Need around 1m snow depth to open. Resort has said as much on their FB page. https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=31364888695&tsid=0.7096944935619831&source=typeahead&feed_ufi=comments " Hi Ryan, our ops team inspect this area frequently a few times each week. We have never opened it on less that a meter of natural base and then we need a follow up storm of at least 40 cms to keep it sustainable. Long story short, we're going to need a helping hand from the snow gods on this one. When we get close to opening, you'll know about it cause we'll be shouting it from the top of the mountain!"

27/7/15 - 9:22pmFinally all booked for Hotham on weekend 14th-16th. Can't wait. New board and finally the snow is picking up...

Quoting Timmossy:At 4.30, the queue off the mountain went for a kilometre, which is why the bus driver for my son's group decided to go back to Melbourne via Omeo. Don't really know whether they were any better off, the bus finally pulled up at 12.10.

Quoting andy222009:Left the mountain about 3pm via H'ville and was surprisingly quick, maybe I just managed to time it ok. Terrible vis for the first few kms, was a bit hairy!
27/7/15 - 10:36amWhen could we expect orchard open ?
26/7/15 - 10:23pmHad a cracking day. Snow was pretty good quality and there was a lot of fun to be had. Upper blue ribbon trails were probably the pick. Drove home via Harrietville and didn't think the road was too bad. People just need to fit chains where directed and drive to the conditions. Tomorrow should be another great day.
26/7/15 - 4:57pmJust had a message from my son, who is travelling back to Melbourne by bus on a uni trip, road closed so have to come back via Omeo.
26/7/15 - 1:34pmI am enroute now from Hotham Good snow very dry Bad vis very high winds and challenging I would without hesitation select Omeo approach Easy Sunny skies east of dinner plain No hairpins The hville approach is and will be hell and slow and you will not make up much time I am nice and dry as a pax in the sunshine now after digging car out of powder in very challenging conditions and would not even consider snaking down to hville in these conditions

26/7/15 - 10:52am

26/7/15 - 10:46am
Quoting Snorkler:If you don't have kids/firm commitment s there is no excuse
