FCRM have announced that clearing of village roads will start on Wed am. "Clearing will begin on Falls Creek Rd and work up from there. Roads will not be re-opened to stakeholders and guests until such time as all roads are cleared and it is declared safe for wheeled vehicles to operate. ATS will continue to operate until such a declaration is made. "

currawong: this is your best source of xc condition info. http://www.fallscreek.com.au/xcreport/ it isn't explicit about the dam wall itself, but certainly about the road on either side.
Thanks. That looks tempting!

Scott No Mates: Have just had a chat to a friend on mountain - roads are still skiable (just not on your own skis).
There was at least a metre of groomed snow on the dam wall road on the first weekend in September 2017.What is the estimated depth there now? Is it rental rock hopper time?

I rang the Windy Corner XC ski hire place and got no answer. If I go up for a morning ski out past the dam wall from Windy corner then I will stop by at Rocky Valley in Tawonga South and get some BC skis ,boots and poles( skis with the metal edges ) and try those out . I am going up and down Mt. Bogong on the coming football long weekend in boots and snow shoes so I may wake up still exhausted on Monday at 6 am and decide not to ski. However this late snow season and a late in life ( I am aged 48 now ) interest in learning XC/ BC skiing could be a motivating force to drive up from Myrtleford on Monday for a 2-3 hour ski before heading back to Melb. :)

Scott No Mates: AFAIK there's still plenty of cover - I haven't heard any mention of it being cleared. All packed now for our drive down. :p
Yeah I checked the snow report yesterday, still full ski-in ski-out apparently. We're in the last stages of packing and will be heading off soon. Can't wait, first snow trip for the +1 and I this year! :skier:

Bluebird: I'm heading there Sunday as well. Anyone know if you can drive into the village yet or do you still need to use oversnow?

Mister Tee on snow shoes: Will the XC ski hire place still be open at Windy Corner on 2/10/17?
Always Rocky Valley on the way through Mt Beauty, they are open all year round and will be able to hire you xc/bc skis anytime there is still snow regardless of the ski season.
22/9/17 - 8:55pm
Mister Tee on snow shoes: OK, I will do that tomorrow morning. :)
Let us know what they say T. Cheers

There is rain forecast, so there could be a lot less by October 2nd. However, if we lose half we still have a metre! :)

BilbyBill: Heaps.
In just over a week would that skiable route 's snow cover change all that much ? I was last up there in early Sept. and there was a phenomenal amount of snow and the lake had frozen over completely.
