I was planning a trip to lake mountain in about a weeks time, but from what I can see all the snow is gone

I was hoping to do some tobogganing.

Is there much chance of any snow fall over the next week? I'm hoping there will be and the toboggan run will be re-open. What are my chances?

Alternatively, if there is still no snow in a week, would mount baw baw be an option?

A week from now, ie next wednesday looks like there could be a decent amount of snow again at Lake Mountain, + possibly good weather on that particular day..

Great, so its not the end of the snow season for lake mountain yet?

I don't know much about snow, but is one day of snowing sufficient for tobogganing? or does it take a while for the snow to settle or something and become hard?

For example, if it snowed a decent amount on tuesday next week after having no snow, would this be ok for tobogganing on wednesday?

At this stage, it's looking good for a good snow fall on Monday, with a possible top up on Tuesday. Provided they groom the snow (pack it down) on Monday night or Tuesday, it should be good for tobogganing on Wednesday. Best idea is just to check the snow cams on Monday and Tuesday evenings. If the toboggan slope is white, head up on Wednesday

Baw Baw is an option too. If Lake Mountain's cams don't look too good, then try Baw Baw's.

A group of beginner skiers had a good day at Lake Mountain last Sunday, apart from the hike to get to the snow. Nothing at the carpark though.

Baw Baw still has snow, but not on the Toboggan Slope on the cam. There's a new "temporary" Toboggan Slope on Big Hill.
