Mister Tee on snow shoes: 1/9/12. Spring snow and blue skies at Mt. Buffalo.
Oh I miss Buffalo! Kind of sad tobogganing on a groomed run under a lift that the govt. won't restore.

Another picture from Early October 2016 , the view from the summit of the Horn.The Mt. Buffalo plateau had enough snow cover to make it look
like a post card but there was not enough to snow shoe or ski anywhere. It was melting quickly too.

A photo from the first weekend in October, 2016, looking towards the Fainters from the Monolith at Mt. Buffalo . There was a dusting of snow up there and the snow plough had cleared the road.

Notice the Kahtoola micro spikes on my feet. . My Irani friends were fitting chains on K.j.'s 4 WD vehicle at the Cathedral saddle, Mt. Buffalo N.P. 25.6.16. It was that kind of surface.We later snow shoe trekked up to the Horn summit from Cresta . That was semi technical in that ice, as you can see the summit ladder was coated in ice.

Awesome info and pics MrT! Thanks so much and even more excited now. The kids will love it and like so many before would be their first snow experience! Thanks again.

Luken: So for the first time, well... ever... im actually interested in the possibilty of snow at Buffalo from the 08th till the 13th July. We staying in Porepunkah and looking at perhaps taking the kids up for some snow play. Questions.. Is the an entry fee? The area around the old ski lifts, is this the best snow play area? Any other useful tips? If there happens to be a low level dump do they clear the road? Thanks.
Hope you get some snow. It's a magical place.

There is no gate entry fee at Mt .Buffalo. You must carry wheel chains and fit them where and when instructed to do so. Cresta valley( the old ski lift area) offers good snow play for those who are not on some kind of ski/ snow board/ snow shoe mission . Dingo dell might be better for your needs, it has a cafe of sorts and a better slope for toboggan use.Others enjoy the cricket pitch for snow ball fights etc. However the summit area of The Horn usually has the best snow cover and views if you pick the right day shortly after a big dump of snow. Last year in late June we timed our winter trip to perfection and arrived at Cresta in the morning from Myrtleford to see clear skies and 30 cms of fresh powder snow , with snow cover quite low down the mountain too. The road is cleared by a snow plough /VIC ROADS, if there is a big dump of snow but the road ices over esp. on the bend that drops down from the Catherdral to Cresta so having wheel chains are a must .The photo is yours truly at Mt. Buffalo on June 25th 2016.

Certainly gives a new meaning to the phrase 'just taking the snow cat into town'.
