    Though I have a spot in my heart for the Victorian alps. Mt Buffalo. Only been there to climb but I'd really love to get down there in winter.

    These ones are all from the Bluff.

    Jawoo climbing up from Refrigerator Gap in a lot of fresh snow. On this day we managed to ride the whole way down the track to the lowest point of the road between 8 mile gap and Refridgerator gap.

    Mr - that is Mt Field (Rodway Range looking down onto the Tarn Shelf). Have seen it skiable several times in the past few years.

    Mr Wendel - Marion's Lookout chute (you literally step/slide off the Overland Track). Only occasionally skiable. This was in 2010 and my brother and I were able to ski all the way down to Dove Lake. We were though on 130cm approach skis with mountaineering boots which made for hard going at the bottom when we hit the soft heath with non-consolidated snow (typical Tassie conditions). Admittedly I ended up snapping one of these skis 100m from the lake edge. :)

    I know it doesn't really count, but first taste of the Main Range was at Christmas. I was a little surprised that there was still some snow around, and amused by the guy we saw on day 2 walking up towards Blue Lake with a pair of skis. Will get up there in the next couple of years at the right time of year I think!
