Reporting back from Mt Baw Baw mid week
Yep 4 lifts open. Skied champagne run by myself for 20 minutes .. MAGIC!!
They are making snow at night for base of most runs
They have some 25cm to 50cm of snow forecast for.. this weekend !!
No queues.. Wednesday $60 for all day ski lift. Hired ski lodge room for $90 a night..Plenty of great parking but expensine to park. some $37 a day
Road from Noojee to Mt baw baw. very, very winding and not very wide.
and took one hour to travel up..YUKK
Took the south side road down the mountain via Erica and MOE and a far better road. It is wider and less winding. although not sealed it is in good nick.. Would use this road in preference.
The general store has no perishables. Take your meat, milk, veg for ski lodge..
Had a fabulous pizza from riders bite next to hotel on the mountain
$24 but fed 2.
A nice exclusive and expensive restaurant is now located where the old chairlift building is.. $ 36 for a large meal ..looked great.
Here is a pic of the upcoming cold front. It looks nice and cold and strong on the sat pic.
However the BOM synoptic still showing the front decaying over VIC
however on livinia's weather ch 9 it is showed the cold front passing over southern NSW and not decaying.
Looking at the strength of the cold pool, l think l will guess it will power over NSW as well, but lets see
The combined model outlook from BOM WATL indicates that eastern VIC will get the 'guts of this cold front' with places like Baw Baw may get 50mm in 4 days and Hotham and Buller and falls creek getting up to 25mm
NSW forecast to get next to nothing.
Wondering if the models are underestimating the strength of this cold front. They have underdone the past 2 fronts/systems so...Lets see..!!
Just reckon the sat pic looks promising.!!
Heard snow down to 800metres in a forecast this arvo? VIC
Jane Bunn WIN NEWS saying
25 to 40 cm by Monday starting tomorrow night.. Take chains..compulsory
The synoptic indicating a small closed low of 995hpascls near Tasmania and eastern Vic on Friday night , so we have a nice motor to power the cold flow over VIC at least
