Blizzard Conditions Today And Lots Of Fresh Snow For This Weekend (And Next Week) (03-Aug-08)

Falls Creek, VIC, August 3, 2008 - The start of August is proving to be a bountiful

The start of August is proving to be a bountiful one for our alpine resorts!
Falls Creek, the largest resort in the Victorian Alps, is currently getting another 'top up' of snow (between 10-20cm) and the winter weather is forecast to continue until mid-August.
July was very good, the snow quality at times was the equivalent of what powderhounds experience in the northern hemisphere, and the current indications are August, which has started with fresh, dry snow, is expected to remain 'cool' until the middle of the month.
Snow enthusiasts are responding to the news the snow is falling and for the lucky ones who can secure somewhere to stay in the picture-postcard alpine resort they'll be rewarded with superb skiing and riding.

Just about every run at Falls Creek is in very good shape. Plus the cross country skiers are also relishing the resort's excellent 47km of groomed trails.

Bottom line is, the snow conditions are as good at gets!! With continual low temperatures, it was a feel like minus 8.7C when they opened the lifts at Falls Creek, the product provided is exceeding guests' expectations.

When it is as good as this at Australian alpine resorts the snow enthusiast's grapevine goes into overdrive. The booking centres at Falls Creek are endeavoring to keep up with the avalanche of calls generated by the snowfalls.

There's quite a few beds available mid week at Falls Creek but the weekends are very busy.

Skiing & Boarding: About  10cm of fresh snow has fallen and the weatherzone site is suggesting 20-40cm today , 5-10cm Saturday, 2-5cm Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. There's also snow forecast for Wednesday and Thursday next week.

Dress for blizzard conditions today!!
