Snow or no snow :( - heading for Thabana Ntlenyana.
I have to do something with the long weekend.

Enjoy it Sweis. There might at least be some crusty snow left on the summit ridge of T.Ntlenyana.

Doesn't seem to be a great snow season so far. I heard from a friend who has just been to Afriski that that the snow-slope there is all slushy, and they were skiing in t-shirts. They say there the season will be short.

So strange considering much of South America has had such a devastating winter this year...

hot in sa, cold in s america, and cold in ozzie. These variations follow 4-7 year cycles, but the changes are getting more pronounced.

The ice climbing season will reportedly close soon.

Any bets on when the next snow fall will be?

And here it is! No 4 for the season I think? A classic dump all along the spine of the Dragon, but not much deeper into Lesotho.

Hmm, I see nothing there today on the satellite and Cathedral peak webcam... Could it have melted so quickly?

Afraid so :dry:

Page back on the satellite images. On the morning of the 20th there was thick snow. The afternoon shot shows about 3/4 of it melted. Seems to have been quite thick in the Northern Berg but I missed the chance to see it on the Cathedral Peak webcam in the morning.
