RTL: Wasn't too bad on the Sunday of Queen's Birthday long weekend, but the rain would have killed it by now. Needs another dump. A good guide to the condition of St Gwinear is the Mt Baw Baw toboggan run snow cam.
Not any more, 'cause the toboggan run now has its own dedicated snow factory! (Courtesy of Lake Mountain)

Link Ms. Bunn has revised her estimate of how much snow we will get in VIC. over the Wed. to Fri. period next week. It looks like NOT ENOUGH to XC ski !.

I won't be a able to think about skiing until later July or August (or September!) having had total ankle replacement surgery 4 weeks ago for my right ankle but my wife might take my kids for a ski on the QB Sunday. Hoping Gwinear gets a good lasting base from next week's snowfalls. Looking forward to some trip reports. Lots of early skiing memories of MSG and skiing to Baw Baw and back plus a long day doing Mushroom Rocks to MSG car park in early Spring in the 90s....when we got more snow for longer.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Link Look at the forecast for Wed. next week FFS, if that comes true then Mt.St.G. will be great !
If the snow was as predicted you'd have >30cm on Wednesday 5th June at MSG. Nice!

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Blizzard conditons are coming to the BB plateaux. This Friday or Next Tuesday could be better up there. Link
Good luck Mr T. Very jealous to a point. As you well know - MSG & BBaw do fallen trees & unploughed access roads extremely well! Have a ski for me. Iíll bide my time until QB.

Goski: Good luck to you Mister T. Hope you get a lovely ski at either destination. I had a memorable day in May at Lake Mt on a snowy Sunday with a bunch of friends. The most fresh in a day I've seen fall there and it was dry snow too. When we got back to the carpark we had to dig the wheels free and fit chains for a convoy descent following a billdozer. Trees were coming down and the trusy old L-series subie wagon was bottoming out and sliding on its skid pans at times with the wheels in the ruts from the preceding bigger vehicled with packed snow in the middle making a sloding platform. Went to Gwinear mid-week after a fall in the landcruiser I had. Parks were up there and the road was uncleared. Wouldn't have made it in without the extra clearance so be careful about that, especially if yours is the only car about if going to Gwinear. When we arrived it was unfortunately blizzardy conditions with freezing wind and sleet so we didn't ski for long.
I will take the wheel chains, snow shovel and chainsaw etc. My car is an AWD with all terrain tyres (2008 RAV 4) so has a tad more clearance and traction than the average suburban jalopy.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: If the Lake Mtn. road is closed on Wed. due to heavy snow falls then Plan B could be MSG!

chriscross: Very nice conditions for touring from Gwinear car park on Monday 17th. Mine was the 4th car in and there were 2 Parks Vic guys supervising parking!! Full cover on the main trail on the way up but melting off at view point. By the time I came back down mid afternoon there were bare patches and rocks appearing. 50- 75 cm up top. After lunch at the rock shelter at AWT trail junction, I was pleased to get a few turns in deep, fresh snow into Tullicouty Glen. Good conditions above the creek along Thomson's run. Then it was a climb up Phillack saddle and a search through the trees for the top of the (unmarked) Saints trail. Had not skied that run for some years. It's worth the effort, skiing along the snow covered creek (look out!), past the falls and down to Gwinear Flat. Return trip around the Cascades trail was patchy where exposed but skiable all the way back. Took the SF Road to BB where I spent the night and skied mostly in the resort on Tuesday. Summit, Hut and Champagne had good cover but Maltese was patchy in places and may not last much longer. Lots of meltation in the bright sunshine and Northerly winds. Make the most of what's left up there, folks.
Great report ChrisX. 50-75 cents(even just in drifts up top) is a great outcome for Sept 19. I guess a lack of major rain events, some cold nights (& days) and a very good cover by end of August has all helped deliver the September goods! Hey there may even be some skiing into October (just) at this rate. How good is that!!
