    No snow to be seen at the moment. Follow Snow report on FB. If snow fell anywhere in SA, they know about it... These guys are ver up to date in this regard.

    Below is a link to the webcam at Sani top.

    Thanks for the link - I'll be keeping an eye on those.

    As an aside, I see the tuneless, singing minstrels are still stationed just off the deck. I rode up there a few weeks ago, and that awful singing made me wolf down my lunch and get out of there ASAP. I know they're just trying to make a living, but they really are damn annoying.

    Good Morning
    i drove the pass on Saturday, there was absolutely no snow, even on top, the lower half of the pass is in terrible condition, the switch backs were all ok.
    i did however find some ice in one of the gulleys about 4km east as the crow flies from the chalet to ice climb though

    I see it snowed in Lesotho & at Afriski, does anybody know of decent snow in the Midlands or elsewhere in KZN?

    I can see its clear skies in northern Lesotho, so any snow falls last night will be gone. Definitely no snow in the Kao mine area
