Joel count me in for a snowy drive. Either before or after the snow. It's been far too long
I could be up for a Brindy run (and maybe bring a friend who just got a RS Clio 200 Cup, if she's back from leave).
I'm certainly keen for an Alpine way drive tho. Only black out dates for me are the 9th of April (wedding) and the 16th is the dyno day up in Sydney.
Sweet! I'll check out some dates for a full day out in the coming weeks. Easter is out for me, other than that I am pretty free up. Stand by for a new thread, these things suck to organise though
Paul, would Sydney people prefer a Saturday or Sunday do you think given they will likely stay in Canberra/Queanbeyan the night before the drive?
Maybe 7 or 8 May for Alpine Way? When does the snow/ice start to cause issues?
As for Brindy Rd, how about Sunday 10 April morning? Would love to see the 200... When we find a date I'll post on OzRenaultSport as well.
First snowfall in the Vic alps was around May 5th last year, and the official snow season usually begins mid June... I don't think you'd want to plan any later than the first weekend in May..
It's a fine line between getting the best turbo-friendly cold, dense air, and watching a camry spear off the road right in front of you...
Any one thought any more about a day down in the snowies?
I'm guessing the best dates at this stage will be the weekend of the 30th apr/1st may or 7th/8th.
Any preferences?? I probably can't do the 7th, but keen for any other day. Anyone else got some blackout dates?
I'll be driving back from Melbourne on the 30th April so that weekend is no good for me. Apparently it's been predicted that Perisher will get snow as early as this weekend.
I had written off the idea of doing the snowies before the snow. After the snow would be better I think but I am out for late October/early November as I am getting married and honeymooning!
Also, snow is a falling
That photo looks the be in front of the massive car park at Perisher, I lifted it from there Facebook, not sure how low the snow is falling.
Mrs (soon to be) ACT180 was such a trooper in the passenger seat all over Tasmania's finest, least straight roads over Christmas that I thought that I really am on to a winner and I should lock it in
Snowies for a honeymoon is only likely to happen if we don't get off our backsides and choose a destination. So, pretty likely as there's just too much to choose from. We've narrowed down to Malaysia or Thailand and we want the swishest, most private accom, and must have our own private pool.
Not sure of budget, so here's a mix via wotif...

My sister actually turned out to be in town (yay) so all good.
Dropped my iPhone though, glass shattered in a million pieces (but still works?)
Alfa averaged 98klm/hr and 4.8L/100 ...
Canberra is cold and a long way from brassy
Who buggered up the gunghalin drive extension
And can I watch the wedding at mooseheads or allbarnun
You guys seen 'the rage' about an infamous silver SS Commodore causing quite a few road rage incidents? Detailed posts on The Riot Act. Keen an eye out for a VE/VY/VZ Dunnydore with rego plate "YBY-06P"
Call ACT Policing with any info you have. As my copper mate called them, Tip Rats.
