Temple Basin Snow Report

Report issued: Aug 22, 2017, 10:36:03 PM
  • Mountain Status: Open
  • Weather: Sunny

    //Bluebird corn harvest//
    Light winds and sunshine all day//
    Springtime has arrived//

  • Snow: 30cm - 300cm

    It's a good day for you to come up late//
    For early on ice will be your fate//
    We'll open at ten//
    With great views and then//
    Corn snow's on the menu for a bluebird date//

    There's still secret stashes of pow to explore//
    But mostly fat slopes of sun baking hoar//
    We may sound optimistic//
    Or maybe troglodytic//
    But it's a great day to ski the Divide I implore//

  • Last snowfall: 2cm on Aug 19, 2017

  • FREE riding for cross dressing mono skiers.

The free goods lift which carries all gear and supplies up the mountain, is also located beside State Highway 73 but 800m further west from the carpark. The access walking track starts from the west end of the carpark.
