Snowy Ride - 2014

It's the first day of spring and finally - some sunshine in Sydney!
It's approaching that time of year again when the annual Snowy Ride takes place in the beautiful Snowy Mountains region of southern NSW... officially Saturday 1st Nov. We'll be there from Thursday night to Monday morning.
This will be our 11th Snowy Ride, 10th on the K1200LT.

The first was on a K75RT in 2004.

Top of Charlotte's Pass - 2013



More pics from 2013 ride

Anyone likely to be joining the fun this year?... numbers were down slightly last year and I think they had just over 3000 registrations.
Beautiful place to ride, especially the run up to Charlotte's Pass... guaranteed to still be some snow on the ground, but the roads will be clear.

And it's for a great cause, finding a solution to Cancer in Kids!
Steven Walter Foundation
Snowy Ride 2014

We'll be staying at the Snowman Apartments... I think for the 5th or 6th year in a row!
Hope to see some of you down there.

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Looks like a lot of fun. Not sure about the snow though. We will be getting ours soon over here. Leaves turning yellow and starting to drop, seems earlier every year. Could be around eight more weeks of riding left.

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Snow mainly gone except in shadowed areas of what we get to call "high country"... not that high really.
Here's a snippet of the last part of the run up to Charlotte Pass, Australia's highest ski resort, at last years 2013 Snowy Ride. In winter this is the road/track used by the snow cats to get to the chalet.

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Looks like a nice road. Not much bouncing on your video so surface must be good. Quite a number of bikes going to and coming from, and some nice gentle twisties.

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

compression on Photobucket sucks... here's a Youtube link. Quality holds up much better.
This section is pretty much up top of the mountains (notice the red poles on roadside, right now they'd be visible, but no road! ). The run up is a nice easy incline with a lot more corners but shaded by trees either side and not as pretty as the top. 20+ minutes is a bit boring to watch though, and I can't be bothered editing it... lol. Maybe thats 'cause I work in film production, just lousy at editing!

This photo attached is pretty much just before that area in the clip, as of this afternoon..

Hope you guys have a good run. One year I'll do it, but it's just so far away from here, it needs another run to link to it from here

Hi Paul, were you on the bike or driving? Was there much snow around still before the last fall?

I was on the bike. Part of a 5000 km ride. Out to Lake Cargelligo, down to the Snowy, up to Canberra, back to the Snowy, up the coast and the Oxley etc and home.
There was very little snow last Saturday. Charlotte Pass resort was clear of snow and only smatterings in the high tops.
I would guess your ride will be glorious and snow free. Enjoy
Best regards
Paul

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Hi,
Got clearance to go and booked the attendance. Will now spend some time contacting my old friends from the region to catch up. Will also, weather dependant, be looking to notching up some significant hours in the saddle around the area. Love this place.

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Warm weather in the Snowy Mountains, mid 20's as we rode in yesterday, people coming in today have to deal with 30'ish degree temps around Canberra and some strong winds... yuk.
A very pleasant ~ 20C in town... lovely.

Took one of Honda's VFR1200's for a spin... pulls nicely but a bit buzzy and very breezy... think I'll stick with the GT as a commuter

Caught up with Brian (bfree) and drinks and dinner will be on the menu in a couple of hours!
A good night ahead.

Didn't stay that way Hilton... rain and cold rolled through today, hit as we were riding up to Charlotte Pass... dropped from about 24C at Jindy to about 7C, high winds and rain at Charlottes...

nice dinner up at Black Bear Inn last night though!

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Good Grief. You will be able to hide a lot of beer in there. That looks pretty good.
regards

Mumm & cider only... no beer taster here I'm afraid :-)
Best thing is we'll be able to take both summer and winter jackets now... cover those 5 day - 4 season riding extremes, plus all our own food rather than buying at inflated Thredbo prices ( I know, they gotta make a living).

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Nice Chris.
Not only Mumm and Cider, food etc, but
a nice tarp and you'll save on accommodation too.


Looks great mate, happy trailering.

Re: Snowy Ride - 2014

Not as fancy as your Bushtec mate, but for $2k and 12 years old, it'll do us!
It's in pretty good nick, even though it used to be a "Hog Toy".... actually, maybe that's why its in such good nick, probably only got a few thousand K's on it...

It looks big enough to hire out for funerals lol!

I presume it tracks behind the LT well ?
I note with interest what appears to be a built in esky. Very handy.
Great stuff.
