The cold Southerly blast across Tasmania today (Sunday 11 April) brought snow to low levels, and whilst visitors had trouble accessing the snow at Kunyani Mt Wellington that was not the case at Mt Field. In fact there was so much snow a number of cars got stuck in the Dobson car park and had to be towed or pushed out!

Subtle fagus colour still visible

Unfortunately the STSA web camera at the Mt Mawson Ski Field is out of action until our volunteer webcam guru Ian Stewart is able to make a trip up there to make some modifications, but fortunately Isobel Webber was kind enough to send through some photos to show us all how beautiful it was up there today – thanks Isobel!

    Woo-Hoo! Come on winter.

    Oh wow! That is truly Beautiful!
    Myself and the missus were hoping to visit this year again, with the emphasis to see snow in a wooden cabin with beautiful log fire. Hopefully this can be a dream come true?

    Hi Gary, The Government Huts at Mt Field National Park could be just what you are looking for. Check out details on the Parks and Wildlife website.
