A little overnight snow!! HOORAY!!!

Limited quantities of second hand chains for sale. Get in quick

Mt Baw Baw ~   RESORT IS OPEN FOR SNOW PLAY!!! 7cm of natural snow blanketing the resort. Hut run platter is on standby this morning. Fingers crossed for one lift turning. All other runs open for snow play. This means you can toboggan on the runs which is excellent news as snow play is now awesome with heaps of snow on the runs. 25cms in snow making areas. Road is open and clear at time of report but icy. Good sightseeing and snow play, Fair to good cross country skiing and tobogganing on a softening cover. Lots to see and do. Howling husky tours and guided walks, coffee, hot food, warm fires.

Mt St Gwinear -  0cm at the carpark. 40+cms at the summit. Both toboggan runs closed. Parks Vic staff no longer in attendance and temporary pole lines have been removed. Parks Victoria will reassess when we get more snow. Best idea is to head to us and then go to Mount Baw Baw if you are keen to toboggan. Good skiing on a softening cover if you are committed to a hike before finding it. Free entry but remember there are no services except for toilets.  Bring a picnic or grab an award winning pie at the Erica General Store.

Chains must be carried in ALL vehicles during the declared season.....YES EVEN 4WD. Book on line to avoid disappointment.
