The blizzard we've been waiting for

It's been a few years since we had a big snow storm. Starting on Friday 4th August we've had wind and whiteout and thunder and lightening - and lots of lovely dry snow.

It's been a bit chaotic on the road with trees down, power lines down, vehicle accidents and an influx of Hotham skiers unable to get up the road from Harrietville. They ran out of day car parks today. But as I write, the road has reopened to all traffic.

Ski patrol are reporting average snow depth of 150cm. The lodge is pretty full for the next few weeks but there are a few nights with beds for singles. Check the booking system
