Does it snow in the Blue Mountains? This is a question we are often asked when guests book Glen Isla over the popular Winter season. The answer in short is YES! Sometimes. If you are very very lucky!
Last year in mid-July (2015) some of our guests arrived to be greeted by lots of snow all through our gardens.
What are the chances seeing snow in the Blue Mountains for our visit?
If you stay in the Winter with us – it’s definitely a possibility! In the 3 years that we’ve owned Glen Isla, we have had snow in 2 of those years. Once at the end of June (2016) and once in mid-July (2017).
If snow is what you’re looking for though, Wentworth Falls (where Glen Isla is located) isn’t the best place to go looking for it. This is mostly due to the elevation of Wentworth Falls where we are located. It does snow quite often higher up the Mountains – Mt Victoria and Blackheath see snow much more often due to their higher elevation. If snow is what you’re after, your best bet is to venture further during your stay with us and visit the township of Oberon – about one and half hours drive from Glen Isla.

All the very best!
Snow in the Blue Mountains does happen occasionally, but not very often. Although the weather gets quite cold in the Winter, in the 3 years since we’ve owned Glen Isla we had yet to see snow there – until this year! In July, we woke to the news that Wentworth Falls and the Upper Blue Mountains had been blanketed in snow. The roads were closed temporarily but reopened by the afternoon so none of our guests’ plans were interrupted.
Our wonderful cleaner managed to get to the house in her 4×4 and was able to get these photographs for us. The house sure does look beautiful with snow in the garden!
