Dogs are very cute, I was very tempted to pat one or two when I Skied past them on Wednesday.Can confirm it was soft and slow but still great fun. They closed Maltese lift and Champagne run at around 2:30 because the snow was melting so quickly. No grooming apparent anywhere! Dog sled team had trashed the entire summit/village xc trail.
Go to Mt. St. Gwinear for snow play. Hire diamond pattern wheel chains and other gear in Erica on the way up from the Latrine Valley.If you are fit you and can find your way in the snow with winter bush walking navigation skills then Mt. Erica will do the job.Mushroom rocks (1200 M. ASL ) had snow on Tuesday this week and even a moderately fit blind man could find the path up there from Mt. Erica car park.Hi gus
This is the first time I am going to snow playing in Australia and we are in Traralgon now
We are looking for some where has snow just to play for one or two hours
Could you please give us an address or name of some villages thats white of snow.?
Mt Torbreck and Mt. Erica offer some BC snow shoe adventures for the fit and adventurous low budget snow lover. They are better kept secrets than some other no longer viable 'snow play ' places that are doomed by lower elevation and warmer winters, so I can't complain about how quiet they are in winter.So what you're saying is that Baw Baw is over as a downhill destination, and that it's going to play the role that Lake Mountain used to play, just as Lake Mountain holds the role that Donna Buang used to.
Taken over an extended period: Donna Buang, Lake Mountain, Baw Baw and Buffalo have essentially snuffed it, now extrapolate from that trend...
State government & new BOM & Chair missing in action - in a holding pattern. Unpardonable Negligence.
Mt.St.G. and Mt. Erica will always be there and remain undeveloped sub alpine areas within the Baw Baw N.P. That is what matters to me. I am not a fan of ski resorts at all. I just love the mountains and the snow.
I am forever finding ways to do my BC snow activities without having to see a chair lift or a toll booth.[/Q
I agree that Mt.St.G. and Mt. Erica should not ever be developed
According to latest from the Gwinear patrol today, 45cm at the rock shelter with reasonable XC on the upper trails. Unsure how far you have to walk to get there or what the conditions will be like tomorrow.Hi all, can we XC ski St Gwinear tomorrow, is the snow cover looking OK?
Which ski hire?This morning I called the ski hire to enquire about XC skis (Skating) , girl answer the phone , she had no clue what I was talking about , didn't know what 'Nordic Skating' is , didn't know about the two disciplines of Classic and Skating. I ask her the brands they have , she couldn't pronounce 'Rossignol'.... bla bla bla
Good Night Irene
Exactly !!! WTF They did not even put that snow to good use, just plowed it down the side. I thought it may have been to top up bottom of champagne run , because it gets chopped up.but noooo. What can i say . that road should have a fence so day trippers can use the road for access and skiers for the Maltese.. My 10 centsAnd they haven't plowed the road this time Its great when you can ski from the car park down to Maltese.
We are all hoping Clubs, Lodges, ect ect . As long as we don't get too much R#$N in the near future and they actually groom it properly , should be ok But as you know weather at Baw Baw can be very fickleExcellent
Do you think the cover can hold out to school holidays ?

I know mate there is a lot going on behind the scenes , sadly not for the better. She has walked into a shit storm also,With the new CEO, I had hoped she would make a point of visiting stakeholders and introducing herself. Haven't seen hide nor hair of her.
It is quite common to use only one form of media to determine how powerful it can be at getting a message across. If they plastered it on all media, they wouldn't know which one was most effective. This time they picked FB - it has already transferred across to this social media site, so working well so far.I could not find it either on the web page, it showed on Baw Baw's Fb page so i thought we need to promote it ,
you would think they would have this plastered everywhere ??? Cheers
Hmm.. What "conditions apply" ? Accomadation booked for a week, maybe ?If temps are negative, lift tickets are free.
