Weather Top +14°C. Another warm one to kick off the week. The sky is mostly blue, there is some high

wispy cloud drifting over. Winds are fresh. Afternoon thunderstorms are forecast so pack the weather-proof

gear. Today's expected top temperature between 9am and 3pm is +16°C.


Weather Village +19°C. Mostly sunny, with some high cloud drifting in from the Main Range. Winds are light.

Today's expected top temperature between 9am and 3pm is +22°C.


Main Range Conditions There are a couple of small drifts on the way to the first bridge, with two large ones

before the Lookout. The snow is very soft so care needs to be taken as there are some holes starting to

appear. The fen and bog areas and small streams are starting to show as is the Tall Herb fields to your right

after Merritts Bridge. Just beyond the lookout you can see the first of the Marsh Marigolds start to appear and

there are a lot of Richard's Pipits flitting about. The walking track beyond the lookout is clear for about 100m

then completely covered in snow pretty much all the way to Kosciuszko. The hardest part (beside the trek

from Rawson's to the Summit) is from Half Way rocks to Cootapatamba - here you are walking across the

middle of a slope. It is recommended that only adults with moderate fitness level to attempt the summit and

that you follow where others have been. The cornice is completely intact and truly spectacular, Rawson's is

pretty much a big bowl of snow, with toilets and interpretation signs still snowed under. Families are advised

to go only as far as the Kosi Lookout.

Chairlift and Facilities Kosciuszko Express is open 9.00am to 4.00pm. Snowgums Chairlift will operate from

November 9 till December 4th inclusive. Australia's highest golf course, the Thredbo Golf Course, is open

daily from first to last light. Thredbo Bobsled, open daily from 12pm to 4.30pm daily. (Weather Permitting)
