I am talking about real snow and not a slurpy machine and a big puddle next to it.
Ariane asked if there would be snow for tobogganing. The answer is 'yes'.
REAL Snow falls from the sky and makes the entire landscape white. Fake ice from the slurpy machine is a con job.
Mister Tee, no one is asking you to go there. I'm sure Ariane has checked the web cams. End of story.
People are still having a great time tobogganing, even if it's not good enough for you.
. The fact it isn't good enough for "you" isn't really relevant. Either there is slurpy snow on the ground or there is nothing. Im sure the snowplayers and first timers will appreciate having at least something to play with (as opposed to nothing).
As long as they have fun , go for it . I am sticking with Mt. Nelse .
Is the official season over for lake mountain? IE can I walk there without paying gate entry ?
Yes, the season is over. Gate entry is free. Bistro only open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. You'll be very lucky to find any snow though
Mister Tee on snow shoes what is your beef with snow making especially toward LM.
From dossa5 on freeheel skis.
I like real snow. I head out into the back country to commune with nature in real snow and ice. That is the trip I am on. If people like fake snow then good for them.
Lake Mountain can be a good day out any time of the year esp. from Keppel's hut but I am now converted to Mt. Torbreck in winter. It is wilder and tougher than Lake Mtn. ever will be.
I assume you snow shoe to get to the pitch you want to ski down
People going for a day trip to go toboganning probably aren't going to care or even notice.
They just want to have a good time in a new and for them a possibly unusual location.
You can't ski Torbreck. Lake Mountain is just as beautiful as Torbreck and less scary for those who don't have the full gear. Anything that is white and cold is snow, whether it comes from the sky or a gun. It doesn't worry me.
Real Powder snow is Real powder snow. The stuff that comes out of a machine isn't what creates spin drifts. Whatever floats your boat I say.
real 'powder' snow.
snow is snow is snow when all you want to do is see it and slide on a boggan.
Evidently Tobogganing at Lake Mtn. is n't high on my list.
Well, don't tell tobogganers what snow they should like and where they should go.
Went yesterday (tooted as I went past) for walk along echo flat to observation rock, sadly no snow but a bueatiful walk. Who knows, there might be some snow there next weekend
People tell me where to go quite often.
Fresh snow overnight at Lake Mountain. And free mountain entry!!!
Nothing open on the mountain today, not even the bistro. So stop in Narbethong (left side of the road) on the way, to hire all you need. I would suggest chains for all vehicles (including 4WDs), as I doubt there will be any snow clearing on the roads.
No snow on the road at all, clear all the way to the top,
Thanks. Sent the first one up with chains, but not subsequent ones.
Nothing at all on the cams now. What happened?
It melted, what do you think happened
I'm assuming rain. The curse of the resort this whole past winter In Narby we had a very heavy downpour late morning. I assume LM had it also.
The current cam image is dated yesterday!
Thanks, Billy, but the car park cam and trail head cam are dated 30/09. I thought it must have rained to disappear so fast, thanks Tecks. Cranky response from the snowtec- must have had a bad season, too.
No, had a great ski on all the trails this morning, 10 cm cover across the resorts ski trails, early up and got a good two hours of great skiing from the resort Snowsports Centre
Fair enough- right place, right time. You did well. Wish I had got there.
It looks like LM has full snow cover for today 23/10/16 !!!. That means Mt. Torbreck will have snow cover today too. Get up there quickly if you have a free day today . It will melt quickly.
LM has a better wind aspect for this type of storm than Torbreck, maybe a couple of cms.
I missed it?
Was in Tasmania - where it snowed last Tuesday (8 days ago) quite heavily at Dove Lake, Cradle Mountain and again on Mt Wellington on Friday and Saturday nights.
