    Hi, is the road to the top open in Covid restrictions? Thinking of heading up Friday with a couple of 7 yo to see some flakes. Don't have to go all the way to the top, but just seeing what the latest is.

    No reason why it would be closed - Check Vicroads for closures.

    @Luken no real Covid restrictions up there at the moment other than one way up and one way down the tower. Might restrict numbers if they think the hoards are going to turn up.
    Traffic lights approx 1k below the turnoff at the rainforest gallery from a landslide few months ago.

    Snow boarding at Mt DB is optimistic. Maybe the HORDES will arrive and many will slide off the road .
