First few balls of snow were at about 770m ASL. By 1000m there was lots of on the side of the road. It was very thick at the Healesville Rd junction.

In the sun it was quite warm, in the shade about 1.5 degrees. Which was actually warmer than when I left Surrey Hills in the morning (more like zero).

Lots of cars, lots of people up the top.

Plenty of snow at Donna. Don't worry it should hold up for this weekend.

No way, snow is already all but gone.
Forecast temp up there is well above 0°C.
Don't worry, winter has just started.
