Snowshoed out the the Horn picnic area yesterday. Plenty of coverage for skiers, saw quite a few out. Very windy so a couple of wind scoured patches, not too bad though. On the way up to Cresta carpark it rained continuously, once there it started snowing around noon and didn't stop until I drove down below the 900 metre mark after the hike out to the horn. 2wd needed chains and 4wd needed to just drive carefully. The Mt Buffalo road has some very steep and tight corners that can be treacherous when covered in snow and ice.

Mt.Buffalo 's XC ski routes need at least 10 cms of fluffy fresh snow to revitalize them.

I went up to Cresta today 4/8/18 with friends.It was raining and the snow cover looked iffy at best.So we went up The Horn road.It was soft and wet under the skis.When I reached the Horn Picnic area visibility was poor, and the wind chill was considerable.It was not a time to hang around so I turned around and skied down back to Cresta car park without any trouble.I skied up and back along the Horn road without any falls. The muppets in hiking boots walking up the middle of the ski track did not respond to admonishment or diplomacy.They were really buggering up the surface and fooey on them!. In the end we made a good day of it and had a good XC ski despite wet foggy soggy conditions. :) P.s. Sorry , I forgot to take the camera out of the car for this XC ski day out.

I am sitting here at my friend's house here in Myrtleford. It is raining but it seems too warm for snow on Mt.Buffalo tonight.However that is where we will ski tomorrow come what may.This Sunday we will be XC skiing at Falls on better snow with maybe a touch of sunshine.

Ubiquitous Steve: Team Bears working on equation that shows when a trip to Mt Wills will break even financially with the money outlayed for some resorts ??:emoji_chipmunk:
Mt. Buffalo and Mt. St . Gwinear are Free. The Hut and pit loo at Lake Catani is a short walk with a pack and skis from the locked winter gate. Hiking into Keppel's hut and skiing at Lake Mtn. that way is free too. Sat. night parking and snow camping is the most expensive rate at Mt. Stirling. The extra fee for staying an extra night on Sunday night is not that much more on top of the initial expenditure. JB Hut near Dinner Plain is free too.

Ubiquitous Steve: Is that fir weekend ....camping out say sat. Night only returning Sunday arvo ?
Ubi. Steve, Mt. Stirling has a cheaper rate for snow campers from Sunday to Wed. nights. You cough up about 100 clams for one day and one night on a Sunday. Then it is only 10 or 20 clams more per extra night. The Razorback hut/s is one hour on foot ( 3kms) from TBJ and has beds and bunks and everything. If the mother load of snow comes on Sunday night this week then skiing the tracks around the Razorback hut will be prime. The Circuit road will be the stuff of xc ski dreams and fairy stories . :) Or It could just r**n a bit. :-0
