Snow Porn: The best shots of June 24

To me the marker of a great snow storm in Australia is what happens in Thredbo Village.

Located at 1365 metres, it’a a bit below the recognised level where snow regularly settles these days in Australia.

So when you’ve picked up 20cm there you know it’s on! That was the marker this morning with an estimated three times that amount up top with about 40cms at Antons. Wow.

And there was certainly no shortage elsewhere either.

Perisher was calling 40cm of snow in 24 hours by early in the morning with more coming down during the day.

Across the border Mt Hotham picked up and even 24cm in 24 hours while Falls Creek did the same.

Even Mt Buller got a decent drop – about 10cm overnight to give them an average base of about 30cm.

The great news is it has been cold – temperatures in the high alpine struggling to get past about -5 all day with wind chill making it feel like about -15c.

While the snow switch gets flicked off tomorrow the suggestion from the likes of Snowatch is it will remain cold through until next Thursday where another front could drop a further foot over three days.

Safe to say the season has started folks!
