For those planning to go to Lake Mountain this weekend, Sunday will be by far the better day. Chains are likely to be required on both days. The snow on the toboggan run at the moment is only man-made and badly rain affected. That is, very wet. It's likely to start snowing either Saturday or Saturday night, so by Sunday, there should be a good cover. For those planning to come up during the first week of the school holidays, later should be better than earlier. Snow is expected to continue falling on Monday and Tueday. By Thursday & Friday, the weather should be fine, chains are not likely to be needed, and there should be lots of snow on the ground.
