    I observe Bawbs has more than Bulls. But it's Hothaido for the win (in Vic anyway).

    Plenty cold enough there, so any precip is going to be welcome.

    This is the High that just keeps on giving.

    Not much infrastructure up at Mt Margaret Gap....But DSE have been up as far as Greenhills Track ....high point on Mt. Margaret Summit Area....Road is good..chains should be carried .non sealed surface .

    No fees ....just park using common sense. Good snow at moment.Possibility of an easy ski tour along Lady Talbot Dve to Keppels Hut.
    Local Businesses providing good back up ....Teckels Ski Shop Narbethong And Igloo Roadhouse Buxton(petrol station) Oh weather report basically contained within photos taken yesterday of recent DSE Operations on roadway !

    Well what a day! Really nice lines off piste with some surprising deep and dry snow if you found the right places. Walked up to mid station and came down under in on the fresh stuff, was really good. Here's to a good season! And to top it all off ABC interviewed me for tonight's news!

    Can confirm. Was effing cold in Port Mac this morning. Layer of ice needing the credit card scrape off like mid winter in NZ. And yes, I live 3km from the ocean as the crow flies.
