The 2019 season at LM saw me up on that hill four times. Twice before the resort opened in early June with later in June and once during that 4 day heavy continuous snow fall that set up the season in August. I will come back and collect my unused supply drop near Keppel's hut this spring, once the 4 x 4 gates open up at Lady Talbot Road. I will go in a check the track up to The Hut loop from the Keppel's hut area ,possibly before Nov. comes. What we need for the 2020 white season are the following: A trail by trail online report identical in format and detail to that of Mt. Stirling; web cameras driven by solar power at key points on the ski trails feeding us skiers live images of the actual conditions ; better management of vehicle access and parking , chain fitting to AWD cars driven by experienced snow drivers should be exempt from nanny state chain fitting stipulations ; :-0 and last but not least some summer culling of some of the dead trees up there. If snow ball throwers are not fussy about where they park and what snow they make into snowballs then send them to park at the lower car parks and allow us regular long term skiers/ returning patrons the chance to park close to the ski trail head. I saw when the resort closed the gates on one afternoon when it was puking with snow , the snow ball throwers were blocking up the road to Wood's Point with their cars and just playing in the snow there. It was all the same to them .The web site's opening page has a picture of a child on a toboggan, not a XC skier so that tells me quite a bit about from whence the target revenue is being sought.

teckel: The snow season officially ends at Lake Mountain on Sunday 29th September. However, remember that Mystic Mountains Ski Hire is the only ski hire that is open all year round, for any out of season snow falls. :)
Onya' Tecks!! Vale 2019' @ LMtn!! (Remembered for its tree-down days!)

Conditions are better than expected. Below snow gauge is touch and go. Be low helicopter flat is good, even if its a bit thin. Above HF is excellent. Although skis off for once section at panorama. Roysten is patchy from half way down. The sun is stuck behind the clouds so the ice crust is keeping speeds favorable Currently snowing at panorama. Light snow in carpark.
If it is snowing at LM then things are looking good for MSG tomorrow !

The green and blue trails were well groomed but were going soft by 10am. The surrounding areas were still good for some off trail skiing although it's getting soft and a little harder going. Long heath trail was super soft too with lots of fallen trees, pools and rocks to keep things interesting.
I will possibly go up there in Nov. and do battle with some of those fallen trees on Long Heath trail. 'Makita' now make a shoulder bag for chainsaws so carrying such a things up and down hills becomes easier.

Its softening up fast. If your sticking to to trails bring wax. If you're going off trail bring gaiters and large baskets.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: . Get on the skidoo and take the 20 inch bar chain saw and clear the trees. It cannot be that hard to do. If Mt. Stirling can do it at their hill then it is possible.
Mr EB said there's tree down at Lower Muster. He said he didn't see any tree down at Jubilee today. :nerd_ubb: We'll be back tomorrow. We came late today, after 2pm. Freshies on groomed tracks. Not many were around on the ski trails. There was someone who was walking in the middle of the trail though!!! :tany: I was just doing some speed runs from the hut to Heli Flat. Let's hope for a cold night and groomed skate tracks tomorrow. Good night people. :sleep:

We have a fresh top up at LM , but later in the week the sun and warm maximum day temperatures ( 9 degrees C. ), yes that large orb in the sky will melt a lot of that snow cover so be quick .

You should purchase the early bird pass in April /May 2020 for LM. You are their biggest patron!.

Simon11: Same as yesterday, just slower. Skis off for bottom of jubalie most of which seemed ungroomed.
September to me means long day tours out to Fitzgerald's hut on the BHP as well as day touring on the Main Range in the KNP in NSW. However another dump of snow could warrant a quick LM trip this month.
