Jane's Weather Snow Forecast

Last Update: Fri 07:33am 26 May

Update: Friday 26 May 2017 - 8am  Two stronger cold fronts are on the way. The first arrives on Sunday, and I'd expect 10 to 20 cm of snow (it changes from rain to snow on Sunday morning, lowering to around 900 metres). The second front arrives on Tuesday, with a further 10 to 20 cm of snow.  I'll have a season outlook ready on Monday May 29th, and daily snow forecasts will begin on Monday June 5th.  Stay tuned for lots of improvements this year, including: fully interactive radar, satellite, warnings and observations; an hour-by-hour forecast for each mountain, using the best blend..

I was up there yesterday 16-9-16. I walked from the car park to the rock shelter then to Mt St Phillack where I saw the first snow, about a wheelbarrow load. I went on another 5km towards Mt Whitelaw and only saw another 2 wheelbarrow loads. It was 3 at 9am in the carpark and 7 at 2pm at Mt St Phillack

Up on Saturday 26 Aug. OK cover where it is shady, but will be getting thin by now.

Visited today and skied halfway up to the summit with the kids. Bullet proof ice at the car park, but a couple of centimeters of dry snow over zero base on the trail - very nice. Reports coming from those who travelled further up was that it was wind blown on the exposed upper slopes. Started coming down as light but consistent fall when we left at 3:30pm.

Skied only to summit of MSG today, on a rapidly thinning cover of soft snow. Still well worth a ski, especially on the 'race track' but will need another snowfall soon to maintain a continuous cover from the carpark. Far side of MSG is very scratchy, as is the 'chute' just after Picture Point.

Skied to St Phillack Saddle via MSG, the rock shelter and Mt St P today. Only about 5cm of new wet snow and sleeted all day. Not a very pleasant day but should be better over weekend. Hopefully the wet sleet, if any, turns to snow overnight. Scratchy cover on far side of MSG and on St Phillack saddle. Slowish skiing on tracks, with best skiing on the 'race track' and from St P back to rock shelter.

Nice one. Should be great with a few cm of fresh cover.

Followed tracks and had lunch out there.The snow beyond the alpine track into Tullicouty was deep and heavy with a crust. Not so great for turns through the snowgums. Next time. Back via the Cascades trail. Then up to bb via Sth Face Rd.

Nice ski today out to the rock shelter and return. Track is now groomed to Gwinear Saddle. Surface firm but good for turns. Generally good cover but some rocks in places, especially from SG summit to SG saddle. Enjoy.

My Saturday plans went out the window due to the weather causing trees and power lines to close access to MSG, but I believe today there was 45cm at JTkF.

I wish I was there! I thought there was no snow. But that will be rectified hopefully soon :-)

Hi all, wonderful snow camp off the top Mt St Gwinear at the junction with the Alpine Walking Track. Lucked in again with the weather this Queens Birthday weekend, 10 of us walked in on the end of the cold front, then 2 days of sunshine! The Victorian Alps at their finest.
