Perhaps Lake Mt Management could consider billycart races with participants holding umbrellas for Saturday.The Road Only has gentle incline to the Snowy Carpark!!Maybe the intoduction of a go cart track in the Carpark area.Team Bears r sure the Nordic community would embrace such developments! That long boarding could also be investigated on the steep roadway just above Marysville!Perhaps Nokian make more suitable bitumen wheels for the elongated skate boards?

Ubiquitous Steve: Teckel may have to set up a jumping castle for the kids and station a few hot food vans around her carpark to capture the market before they waste their time in Marysville or at Lake Mt.
Link Ms.Bunn thinks LM may only receive 5 cm of snow on Sat. night. The heavy R**n that is predicted to come before the snow fall will obliterate whatever icy patchy cover is already there. If one is to go and rock hopper XC ski there then on Sunday would be the best option.

teckel: Web site down this morning.
Well there is enough manufactured snow to allow children to toboggan on as far as XC skiing goes the situation is quite poor and we are all waiting for the snow to arrive on Sunday morning. The follow up low pressure system looks like it will slide away and NOT bring any snow early next week to LM that is worthy of mention so far.That is the Muppet news flash on LM from me ( The Clayton's Lake Mtn. web site wallah ).

Link Take a look at this automated forecast. Pi**ing with rain followed by 13 cm of snow at LM on Sunday night. Link The automated modelling now shows no follow up front early next week. If you go then Monday could be the day.

skiflat: The computer is predicting that
The computer often says NO but in reality 24 hours out from the cold front coming into effect is the best way to forecast and plan a XC ski day. Link

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Link Ms.Bunn is predicting 12 cms of snow on Tuesday next week followed by a top up of 2 cm on Wed. next week. In fact there will be some R**n on Sat. as well as some snow as the cold front progresses, followed by some smaller snow falls. It is a long way off but I am watching this trend. I am organizing my time to XC ski on Wed. week at LM.

teckel: School holidays. You'll be sharing the trails with lots of kids :)
As long as the groomers are working I will be able to find a way on nice terrain to escape those under 16's who will try to wake the dead with their noise.

snowgum: After speaking to the mtn today its amazing anyone hot a ski. In fact cm for cm I’d say LMtn are doing much better than BBaw. No one grooms < 10 cm esp when it was warm & wet post ‘dump’ & max temps ~ 10c prior to the snowfalls. Crazy for lateish May! Think I’ll wait until it can be groomed. Frustrated skaters should always have at least a light classic set up with a touch of width for umm ‘float’.
Yes , All XC skiers should always carry a set of boots and Pattern based rock hopper OP SHOP skis for rock hopper conditions. I hit a lot of hazards and had more falls than I usually would but I still got some turns and a work out. I know the skiing will be so much better with 20 cms of cover and some grooming but I am a lost cause and just want to XC ski. MSG is reporting 17 cms at the MSG toboggan run, with Fair Nordic skiing on almost complete cover with some grooming and PV has cleared the road. I am almost sold on trying MSG on Sunday before it all melts. It would be a 0530 wake up time and 0630 departure time.

djam: You don't put machines on snow with so little, it just makes a mess. You need to be a bit more patient, it's just June after all.
Maybe you are right about the grooming on a thin cover of snow but not everything is going 100 % right up there on that hill. Show me the web cameras for instance.

Nice to see you out there, EB. Hard going on skate skis but at least we were out there. In June. Mr Tee had the right idea with the op shop skis.

We went up yesterday and was quite disappointed by the (lack of) cover. I should have a rockhopper set of skis but I didn't so my skis copped it. :cry::cry::cry: Nevertheless still happy to get a workout.

The daily images for the ski trails are now at least 24 hours out of date. So they are not daily images at all. They are showing Wed. morning's photos. Link
