Snow Watch 2010 was created by intrepid
This is the official thread for Snow Watch 2010. Feel free to post pictures, information, questions and reports about the snow conditions in the Drakensberg for 2010. The idea is to keep track of the snowfalls, pool information about where the snow is for those that want to go see it, and simply to have a place to express the joy and experiences you may have had if you have witnessed the grandeur of the Dragon clothed in white.

Snow Watch 2009 is recorded here .

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

Can anyone tell me about the conditions in the Berg this time of year? I was hot in my summer bag when out there for the first time in January, and my only other option is a warm winter bag...suggestions?

Hey ClimbyKel, I was in the Berg last weekend camping in a valley at around 2000m, night temperatures were around 6°C. My lightweight sleeping bag was ok, but just bear in mind that minimum temperatures start dropping quite sharply from now on. Also if you're going to high altitude, night temperatures will already be approaching freezing. Oh, and dont forget your sunblock, days are still pretty hot!
