So ..................... they start snow-making at Lake Mountain this coming weekend. That should ensure a good cover for snow players and the ski school for opening weekend (11th to 13th June).
Yeah, they have only had ski lifts for a relatively short time. I think downhill skiing is a bit like water skiing, if you haven't got some sort of mechanical tow, you just can't do it! so in a way it is really an artificial sport, isn't it?You mean the original form of skiing?
I know it's called Lake Mountain (after a Mr George Lake), there is no lake and not really much of a mountain! however, it is a great place for XC when the conditions are good. I was there last year when it was snowing and I swear it was almost powdery!Hoping it's a good year it's one mountain I haven't seen yet.

A headups on entry this year. Mountain entry cannot be purchased at the bottom of the mountain. You must purchase on the mountain. (unless you purchase one of their tobogganing packages or a learn to ski package). The quickest way to get through the queue is to pay cash, not by card.
Weerab, they discounted seniors by only a dollar or 2 last year. I felt that was an utter insult to those more senior like us. This year it's so much better.
MIt's only been a few decades since I visited LM, but the mention of the $56 entry (!?) prompted me to look at their site.
Lake Mountain all done growed up! I had no idea it had changed so much.
So it's now Lake Mountain Alpine Resort?
And it has snow packages- Family Snow Play Package for $137 - car entry, toboggan hire and lunch for 2 adults and 2 kids.
Winter Wonderland for $375 - car entry, toboggan hire, ski hire, food voucher + lesson for 4. Or a Beginners Ski Package.
I heard they brought in Belgravia Leisure a few years ago to run things. If this works it's a great pipeline for future skiers.
Starting at Buller/Hotham/Perisher/Thredbo/Whistler is a bit intimidating and expensive for many.
edit - I just searched "Belgravia" and see that they, and their capabilities, are a sensitive topic.
