    I am going to Bright this weekend and plan to have an XC, ski would, anybody like tooffer an opinion as to which mountain to head to Hotham for Mt. Loch or Falls Creek (for south facing south facing terrain)? Not fussed with travel times & entry $$ etc just wondering which may offer more continuous snow for an XC or snow shoe day out. The snow cams are not always a great indicator.

    Hotham is pretty patchy at best...basically the summit and a bit off the back is viable.

    It’s awfully early mate. Have you got some rockhoppers? You might regret skiing on a minimal base?

    Don't bother with either mountain.
    No snow.
    Go Murray cod fishing in the surrounding low land rivers.

    Hello everyone

    With GOD’s help I managed to get a one day lift pass on Monday 6th July at Hotham..car entry to resort has been paid also

    However, I have no one to go with!

    I live in Southern Eastern suburbs of Melbourne and if anyone is keen to go please let me know. I have a Hyundai Iload with plenty of room and snow chains ready to go.

    Also, if anyone is already going I would be happy to meet you there on the slopes and ski together

    Please let me know if this could work with anyone

    May have been better off posting on a Christian hook up forum as the DEVIL and his disciples lurk here, always trying to lure young frothers to the darkside, beyond the ropes
