The last few centimetres of snow cling on tenaciously at Spencer's Creek (1,830 metres) as at the 16th, down from its peak of 170.5 cm just 6 weeks previously in early October. It will be gone by the time of next week's check, if it hasn't vanished already in the warm weather.

Snow cams still show patches of snow on the highest ground.
The snow has long since departed from lower levels.

So that's probably it for the 2016 snow season.

Was up in Thredbo, Charlotte Pass and Perisher on the weekend of 11-13 November 2016. Scored a nice late snow fall on the Sunday. Here's a few pics to set the scene.

Could be a chance today later on. Won't do the drive this time.

I miss the snow too. Japan in January '17 should fix that deprivation.

Not Australia, but thinking of those very cold days from a few weeks ago in Furano, Japan. What a contrast to what's happening here.

Kangaroo, are you back from Japan now?

What a change that must be, you've returned at possibly the worst time too.

Yes, feels like only yesterday I was naked, surrounded by Japanese men, also surrounded by the best quality snow I've ever been in.

Got down to some wickedly cold temps over there, hard to know who to believe. Furano resort reported -29 one night (but ski resorts tend to exaggerate). The town's prominent digital thermometer depicted -17 one night. I was so rugged up that it was hard to tell. My nudie onsen was indoors, so I didn't get to experience shrinkage or frostbite (or a combination).

Cheers.
