Jane's Weather Snow Forecast

Last Update: Wed 08:40am 31 Aug

Wednesday: Rain clearing, then showers and thunderstorms developing. The next low brings wet snow up high to eastern resorts on Saturday. Troughs, well fed by tropical moisture, are crossing the southeast. The first brings the band of rain, clearing eastwards this morning. The second trough lets showers and thunderstorms develop, mainly this afternoon - and there is a hint of cooler air to produce some wet snow around 1900 metres with this.We take a break tomorrow. Generally dry conditions, but there are isolated showers, possibly as snow to around 1800 metres.Another low taps into the remains of that tropical moisture and..

Mister Tee on snow shoes: REAL Snow falls from the sky and makes the entire landscape white. Fake ice from the slurpy machine is a con job.
o_O:doh:. The fact it isn't good enough for "you" isn't really relevant. Either there is slurpy snow on the ground or there is nothing. Im sure the snowplayers and first timers will appreciate having at least something to play with (as opposed to nothing).

Mister Tee, no one is asking you to go there. I'm sure Ariane has checked the web cams. End of story. People are still having a great time tobogganing, even if it's not good enough for you.

teckel: Ariane asked if there would be snow for tobogganing. The answer is 'yes'.

I am talking about real snow and not a slurpy machine and a big puddle next to it.

Ariane: Is there any snow for tobogganing on Saturday? Wanting to bring the family for the day!
Ariane, the mountain has assured us that they will continue making snow, and tobogganing will certainly be an option for the coming weekend.

Lake Mt. and Mt Baw Baw both look like lost causes at the Moment. We are driving up to camp at Mountain creek ( Tawonga ) on Friday night and spending the weekend snow camping / snow shoe trekking near Falls Ck. They still have some real snow up there . The rainfall this week will decimate all the lower lesser snow spots.

The area on Lake Mt. near the boundary hut ruins that look toward Mt . Bullfight usually has some good snow if there is any real snow up there.That is near the highest point on the plateau. Why not have a snow camera there?.

Ski.com only posts automatic uploading cams, as I understand it. If you want to see daily trail pics, go to http://lakemountainresort.com.au/cams

6 photos are taken every day at the major intersections then uploaded, currently fair skiing on all the upper trails but there are some gaps & holes as expected after the heavy rain.

They're not automatic cameras.They go up there each morning, take the photos, then post them. So one pic per day only.

teckel: Even on the upper ski trails (100m higher than the car park) there is natural snow. So Maybe Lake Mtn should be posting snow cams from the Upper trails on this site Teckel? Not sure if the 2009 fires wiped them out but I thought there used to be some good locations. These car park cams do LM no favours at all.

I was at Falls Creek on 22.8.16. It is a rather different picture there now. Maybe somebody could build another 400 Metres of elevation across the LM plateau to increase the snow fall ;-P ?
