I am still not 100% convinced that the 3 hour drive, one way , will be worth it tomorrow to ski at MSG. I want a better surface to XC ski on, one that has all the hazards covered/buried and without the icy footprints . I will wait and watch, grasshopper.

Ah Haa! A new update from MSG mission control :) . 17 cms fresh. I think Sunday could be good for MSG!! It could be another rock hopper day but with a touch of sun the Main trail on MSG would not be too icy for the return run back to the car park The snow cameras at BB look good. Link

MSG's reporting is bollocks. BB has got 8 cms and counting .Look at the BB snow cameras.The snow has accumulated in the trees which is always a good sign. If it keeps snowing then a groomer up the main trail of MSG would not be out of place on Saturday.

Link I wonder if MSG will get enough snow by Sat. to have XC ski...?. I shall watch the Toboggan Camera on BB and decide. Friday could be worth the drive up to BB/MSG if it keeps snowing to make the trails rock hopper-able!

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!
