A magnitude 5.8 earthquake shook up southern Australia today causing damage to buildings and structures. The epicenter was near Melbourne, and it was felt as far as 600 miles away in Sydney.
Mt. Buller, a popular ski resort in the region, felt the quake as skiers were descending the slopes. One of the webcams at the resort captured the effects of the quake through some bouncy footage.
I imagine that skiing during an earthquake isn’t something that most people have done. I wonder how much you really feel the ground shaking if you’re actively skiing?
Does somebody from California or elsewhere have any insight? Thanks.
Mt Buller: “Here’s the footage from our snowcams showing skiers enjoying some extra challenges this morning on Standard; plus a clip from LBS. Shakey Knees was also living up to its name this morning 😬 No avalanches folks, we’re fine and back on the slopes enjoying the skiing. #earthquake”
