15cm of snow up top and only 25 days to go!
A cold snap swept across the Snowy Mountains this weekend with fresh white snow falling all the way to the village. The snow dump has gotten us pumped to strap into skis and snowboards in just 25 days!

The mountain is sporting a new white blanket this morning with the weekend producing over 15cm of fresh goodness up top. The very cold temperatures saw snow making in full swing across the resort, complementing the natural snow fall and providing the start of a winter base in the lead up to Opening Weekend.
Those staying in Thredbo Village on Friday night, woke up to falling white flakes and winter mountain village vibes.
The early season snowfall is setting the season up nicely for what should be an awesome winter ahead. Mid-May snow dumps are rare in the region and an awesome sign for people getting excited to ride in June.
BOM forecaster Helen Reid has predicted the cold snap is here to stay. “…temperatures are not going to bounce back up as high as we’ve seen after other cold snaps, because we are closer to winter.” – The Brag
Considering Tuesday will get as low as -5 °C and the maximum temp of the week is a cool 4°C, we are going to have to agree.
As the cold temperatures continue, we are looking forward to a big week of snowmaking ahead!
