Just got back last night from Talbingo and Selwyn; came back over the range to Cooma ran snow all the way, saw atleast 6 inches of fresh snow along the top of the range and that was early around 1030 - I think we lucky we got out when we did from all the reports and also we saw enough cars & 4WD's off the side. The kids saw snow for the first time and we all loved it.

Hi Michael,

I saw your post and then told the wife. 90 mins later we were on Meryla Rd and the kids were pelting me with snow balls from what was left at that time.

Also spoke to a couple in berrima that were staying in a b&b. They reckon the snow started falling around midnight so they decided to go for a walk during the snow fall.

We took the kids to see Spiderman last night in Bowral, at 9.30 after it finished, we emerged and it was snowing, Drove back to Moss Vegas and it was really coming down. This morn at 7.am , you would have thought it was in the snowfields.

Just back from the Vic Alps and there was plenty of snow there Friday/Saturday night which saw a few road closures. We were at Hotham on Friday and it was -3 at noon and probably ten degrees less with the wind chill factor.

we've just spent the day up around Shooters Hill, out from Oberon. Heaps of fresh dry powder, 3 or 4 inches mostly, great for snowfights.
Went up Bell this morning just as the road was opened, very icy and slippery. Kids (big ones too) had a ball.
Apparently the GWH was closed at Wentworth Falls due to icy conditions and cars sliding off.

Yes one of our group got a reminder of how slippery it was, spun a 60 series at about 10kph without trying.
As I was heading up in the morning there was a falcon ute loaded travelling about 2 car lengths behind me in the Humvee as I'm spraying snow and ice out at about 40k. He nearly had a heart attack when I braked to miss a bod sliding the opposite direction.
