Good Spring conditions at the moment with a nice sunny day today and more of the same tomorrow. Clouds will increase during the day on Sunday and we will see showers developing overnight that will become heavy at times on Monday ending what has been a difficult season on a wet note.

A warm spell will see any potential snow systems slide south and leave us with showers and rain over the next two weeks.

It would be an understatement to say that Season 2020 was a disappointment. The COVID19 epidemic meant we were never going to have a 'normal' season. Victorian's were shut out for most of the season and NSW operated at about 50% capacity in terms of numbers allowed on the slopes. Selwyn Snow Resort never even opened as a result of being completely burnt down in the January bushfires.

As for the snow cover it will go down as one of the worst on record with the Snowy Hydro Spencer's Creek snow depth reading peaking at 167.9cm on August 27th, a far cry from last years 228.9cm, 2018's 224.6cm and 2017's 240.9cm peaks. You could say nearly 170cm isn't that bad but it was. The depth at July 29th was only 70cm and it was much less in Victoria.

Businesses in and around the mountains are hurting, many could not open and they will need our support in the off season and also leading into next year.

We can now look forward to hopefully having a vaccine available prior to next season. There are also whispers of a travel bubble between Australia and Japan in the coming months so there is a slight chance of some snow travel, but this sounds like a long shot.

Feel free to email any suggestions to improve the site or things you would like me to look at for Season 2021: [email protected]

Til next season.
