I recently ventured to Baw Baw near the end of season on a sunny 12 degree day with no chance of snow (or rain). I was in an AWD vehicle which I specifically purchased to minimise having to fit snow chains in all but necessary conditions. On this day, in spite of the clear roads, mild weather, zero chance of snow and AWD vehicle, they forced me to hire chains at the bottom of the mountain! I realise it is a legal requirement in Victoria, but in these circumstances it is hardly fair or reasonable. It was plainly a money grab.
