I just spent two half days at Mt. Buffalo. On Sat. we hiked up "The Big Walk".We did a car shuttle so we did not have to walk back down :-) . Today I drove up again from Myrtleford for a visit to summit of The Horn. There is not enough snow to ski anywhere up there. It is slushy, icy and soft in the drifts that are left under the trees higher up the sides of Lyrebird plain, The Horn road and Cresta Valley. I will look forward to skiing the learner XC trails next white season up there.

BillyKidd: Very neat. Maybe Team Bears can design a Pygmy Possum hut?!
You would have to have a honeycomb of rocks as part of the foundation...cos the little critters apparently like those rock gullies.... But no doubt some little critters have found the firewood stash in Blairs and have moved in for the winter!!

Believe it or not, you can stay in France for as little as $0 dollars per night, and the accommodation is probably the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. Bruit du Frigo is a collective of artists, architects and photographers who have been making headlines in the Bordeaux region with their six Refuges Périurbains (Peri-urban shelters). All of the shelters are equally beautiful, but the most popular amongst travellers has been “Les Guetteurs” translated to “The Watchers”— a trio of wooden owl-shaped huts you can actually live in. image: http://prod.static9.net.au/_/media/2017/07/11/11/08/watchersowlcabin2.jpg
“Les Guetteurs” was designed and constructed by Zebra3/Buy-Sellf who was inspired by the local ground-dwelling owls in the region. The hut is built on a pier with a deck overlooking a wetlands area and inside are three levels with round beds connected by ladders to create the look of a nest. So why is this charming abode completely free? The hut is part of a project to promote urban hiking and encourage more travellers to the area. Every hut – each with its own unique shape – can host up to 9 people. image: http://prod.static9.net.au/_/media/2017/07/11/11/08/bruitdufrigotinyhousein.jpg
The only downside for some, is that there is no electricity or water access. However, it’s impossible to appreciate Bruit du Frigo for its architectural beauty. For information on accommodation, head to their website. Read more at http://elsewhere.nine.com.au/2017/07/11/11/06/stay-in-adorable-owlshaped-huts-in-bordeaux-for-free#5OF5V89TYYDbtBiP.99

Luken: Was up at Buffalo yesterday. Good snowplay cover for tobogganing and snowmen. Snow on the ground to around 1200m. Snowing to the chalet in mid afternoon. Was very pretty! Plenty up at the old lifts, slighly less at the cafe, but still well worth the visit.
I am glad you and your offspring got to have a day with real snow at Mt. Buffalo. However, at present it doesn't look like there is enough snow to XC ski or do some proper BC snow shoe trekking.

I am now set on the NW spur of Mt . FT. I am into winter mountaineering and I guess I will have the MUMC hut to myself if I grovel up that track with a full winter pack on Monday next week. It is meant to be snowing down to at least 1300 M. so I will get some kind of work out in the snow.

Mister Tee on snow shoes: If it snows enough I could be tempted to go up the HORN for a day trip from Myrtleford on Monday next week , July 17th 2017 .
Hiya, I love the Buff/Horn, but if you're from Mel I think Stirling will offer more snow & better skiing(?) than Buff atm! (Enjoy though!)
