The wait is over. Melbourne’s Herald Sun, who always love a bit of hyperbole has declared it “The megablizzard. Snowpocalypse now“.

A few weeks ago, Falls Creek management made the brave prediction:

Like many on the mountain, we’re beginning to get a very good feeling about this Winter. Old hands say it feels a lot like 1991, the end of the last Cold War, when our dear frenemy El Nino looked like a double agent early on before confounding the pundits and pounding us with record snowfalls. The pattern looks encouragingly familiar this year. Fingers crossed.

Whether they are right waits to be seen.

But there is no doubt that the snow is falling. Check the forecast amounts for resorts over the next week, courtesy of Mountain Watch.

Bring it.
