    It is still snowing up there. It is bizarre to be at home when the weather is like this with snow below 400 M ASL. Usually I would be XC skiing until I am spent.

    This reminds me of August 2001. No snow all winter and then BAM!, a metre of fresh snow in one week....

    Just not fair. Some locals decided to go tobogganing yesterday and figured the clearing near the entrance gate would be a good place. They went in 4WDs. They couldn't make it that far, so ended up tobogganing up and down the Marysville-Woods Point Rd :)

    Lake Mt. are reporting 35 cms of snow from the big snow fall on the weekend but I would guess the snow storm delivered more snow than that higher up past the Panorama lookout. As the clouds finally start to lift we can see the Yarra ranges are still caked with snow.

    Locals could get access to LM ski trails via Keppel's hut.

    Mt. Stirling is open to regional Vic. and they have dropped the front gate fee. The Mt. Stirling snow report is VERY GOOD top to bottom.
