Link The Buff might a get a mild refreshing top up on Tuesday. A ski up to Wild Dog Plain or the first half of the Mt McLeod track could be way more interesting than skiing at Mt. Stirling and free too.

Reservoir road. 13th August 2019. .Check out the road marker thingie. It is buried up to the red thingie.I am tempted to suss out on BC XC skis some of the Mt. McLeod track if the cover holds in there until Wed. next week or ski on Wild Dog Plain.

Reminds me of when I spent a day at Mt Buffalo on Sept 2 1989. A very similar deep cover of snow... That was back when Cresta had 5 operational ski lifts!

Nordic Skier: XC groomer broken down, possible broken axle. Not much space for smaller groomer to pass. Skis balling up climbing road to Horn.
I will take SWIX GLIDE WAX and FISCHER DE ICER. XC in my day pack as per usual. Skis clogging up with fresh snow is a nice problem to have. Sounds like a Madshus Epoch kind of ski scene, W I D E BC XC skis on deep soft fresh ungroomed snow. How are the roads to drive on up there? Fitting chains to 2wd or to ALL CARS?

FYI if you are heading up to the Buff to ski until you have had enough ( is that possible?).Here is a Cresta Valley trail map.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Hi. A snap decision based on amazing deep powder snow at Mt. Buffalo has been made !!! . My friend and I are going snow camping at Lake Catani hut at Mt. Buffalo tomorrow for 2 nights. She will be on snow shoes and I will be on BC XC skis. The entire mountain at Mt. Buffalo is rarely skiable like it is now, it costs nothing ski and camp there, and the trails have been groomed, whereas JB Hut and surrounds is skiable every winter.
A trip report with pictures is essential ;):whistle:

Mt. Buffalo looks mind blowingly good for XC skiing at present. My guess would be the whole of the Mt. McLeod fire trail would be totally skiable!!.This is a rare event!!!!.

neilmny: Err are you happy Mr Tee :thumbs:
I hope to get up there on Sunday week. One hopes the snow will hang in there. My friend who lives in Myrtleford XC skis but she is not ski mad like I am .She should be there now but today she has gone canoe paddling with her canoe club instead. WTF ?

Link With maximum day time temperatures predicted to remain under 13 C. and rain forecasted for Melb. for the next 4 days, I think Mt. Buffalo could be back in the white zone soon :-) . I am cautiously hoping to ski there on Sunday 18/8/19 .

Ms Bunn is predicting almost a metre of snow by next Wed. at most locations. it could be a very rare chance to XC ski all the way to Mt. McLeod and back in a day !

Hey Mr Tee August has only just begun. This is the snow month.
