    Question What does the snownami mean for baw baw?

    Hi Putin, Snownami was never going to deliver any snow to Baw Baw today but tomorrow and especially early next week could be 30cm-40cm. Then on the following weekend maybe 20cm which would be enough to set you up for the 31st. The truth about Baw Baw is you only need 30cm prior to your trip for...

    Sapporo Accommodation & Surround Ski Fields

    Sapporo Accommodation & Surround Ski Fields

    I have a trip planned in February and plan to end it with a few days in Sapporo. A mate from Japan told me that you can stay there and there are buses that can take you to the surrounding mountains each day which are not that far. Has anyone done this before and have any tips? Also, what...

    baw baw website snow reports

    I disagree. Baw Baw is the only mountain I know to UNDER-REPORT! I went up two weekends ago and the gauge on Summit T-Bar was 65cm and they were reporting a lot less. Really, Baw Baw needs to use that guage or report from the Poma and Summit gauge.

    Mt Baw Baw 2013 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    I came up to baw baw last night. Lowest snowfall level (south road) I have ever seen. I had chains on but couldn't get my 2wd up the mountain due to the road and neither could anyone else so 4wd with chains had to take us up. Very snowy here and still snowing lightly fine powder. For baw baw...

    Mt Baw Baw 2014 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    The chairlift to the bottom was over-rated. The first half is great but after that it become a thin road (at best). What was worse, at the end it just ended and you had to get down this steep section to the road somehow. It was the glory of doing it though that made it worth it. Chowder, my...

    Mt Baw Baw 2014 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    Yep, I remember how a day like today you would just forget about all the pomas and T-bars and just ski the chairlift all day. Easily the best lift at Mt Baw Baw and I was lucky to ski to the bottom of it twice. RIP.

    Mt Buller 2013 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    I can understand that locals like fog, but Buller really is trying to attract people like me who have a choice of also Falls/Hotham. I really can't work out why signs are not everywhere to help people know each lift is. At Whistler they also have a big chart of mountain at the top of most lifts...

    I did Buller as day trip today. Left at 5:00am (SE suburbs) and got there just on 8:30am. Was snowing at the carpark when we got there and we were lucky not to have to put on chains (was touch a go there). Overall, conditions were NOT great. The snow was very heavy and during most of the day...
