Jonny Middle: Are they grooming the XC trails up there?
That's assuming there is anything/enough snow to groom after the past week.

That day last month at The Buff ( Mt. Buffalo ) was a- fecking- mazing. You don't get that mix of oodles of fresh dry powder snow and sunshine that often up there. It meant that the finger over the lens had to be used to take pictures so that the personal memories remained clearer and more real that any photos could ever be.

You must have the same camera as me, Mr T. I think we paid extra to get the finger ;)

However I could be wrong about whether the best powder snow dump yet at Mt Buffalo has come and gone. This new snowfall is looking good but sadly I am stuck in Melb. I will ask my old XC ski friend in Myrtleford for a proper Muppet news flash about snow on THE BUFF.

I can't help thinking that June 25th 2016 will not be bettered this season at Mt Buffalo. Here are some photos via a web link. https://picasaweb.google.com/113588076264681197691/6305989553026211729?authkey=Gv1sRgCIbirP3a0b2DmwE#

Thanks for the update Mr T. I received an email from parks saying it was closed but it just didn't seem right. I camped there two years ago with no issue. I take firewood in with me. They did have a shed with firewood that you could buy.

it123: I was hoping to camp at Lake Catani in a couple of weeks time, but Parks Vic have stopped winter camping there. It is a great location for introducing people to snow camping and snow shoeing.
I rang the Mt Buffalo ranger. You can hike into the Lake Cattani camp ground and snow camp there. No fees or booking are required. There is a shelter/ hut but buying firewood from the Ranger seemed like a remote possibility. There is a pit loo there that is open too. All other facilities are shut until the Green season starts again . Two of my crew snow camped at the Horn picnic ground. I piked out of that and went back to my friend's house in Myrtleford.

I would guess that this week and this coming weekend will still be quality stuff at the Buff.

Today,June 25th 2016 was a superb fresh powder snow day.We snow shoed from Cresta Valley to the Horn summit and back.The weather was mostly clear and sunny except at the summit of The There was no view to be enjoyed at the very icy summit of The Horn.The Horn rd was already groomed when we got there this morning.The cover was deep and complete.The snow ploughs had cleared the road and chains were mandatory for nearly all vehicles .The gorge and the chalet also looked like a winter postcard.The Buff in perfect winter conditions has it's own voodoo and mystique. My only gripe is/was that People who wear street shoes and make boot prints on the groomed trails are not getting the thumbs up from me and there were quite a few doing just that today.

It looks likely that I will be hiking up " The big walk" this Sat.( 25/6/16) at Mt Buffalo. I will take snow shoes and poles because the Friday forecast looks like Snow down to 700 M. I will let people know how I get on.

Ziggy: Conditions report : http://ski.com.au/reports/australia/vic/buffalo/index.html
Yeah I had a quick look at that, shame they didn't report the overall depth. I'm always worried to go cause they never seem to get any decent snow at buffalo even when the big resorts do well

Worth doing if the cover is OK. Has it's own distinctive vibe.
