Weather Top +4°C. A cracker of a day, full of blue sky and sunshine, winds are light but cool. Fog is hanging

around the middle and lower areas, but should burn off quickly. Today's expected top temperature between

9am and 3pm is +10°C.

Weather Village +8°C. It is a foggy start, but this should clear early to a bright sunny and blue day. There is

little to no wind. Today's expected top temperature between 9am and 3pm is +16°C.

Main Range Conditions The track to Mt Kosciuszko is clear of snow to the first long climb and a small drift a

little way further along. The first Buttercups have been spotted on the right side of the track just after the

Merritts Bridge. From the Kosi Lookout to halfway rocks the track still has a few large snow drifts. The Marsh

Marigolds are now in full bloom and look great. You are now able to see the track in sections that allows for

easy navigation to Lake Cootapatamba, which is now visible. There are small skinks around and many frogs

can be heard in the bog areas. From the Cootapatamba Lookout there are still large areas of snow to

Rawsons Pass. The toilets are now mostly visible, but the door is still blocked with snow. The walk up to the

summit is still very deep and snowshoes are recommended, the cornice is still absolutely spectacular as are

the views towards Mt Jagungal and Charlottes Pass. Make sure you check the weather forecast before

heading out. Enjoy.
