Jane's Weather Snow Forecast

Last Update: Thu 08:50am 30 Jul
Thursday July 30th, 2015 Presented by: aussieskier A cold front will cross southeastern Australia later today / early Friday morning. This will be the first in a series of fronts that will just keep on coming every day or two until the end of next week. Each front should bring 5 to 10 cm of snow - adding up to 30 to 40 cm over the week. The fronts from Monday to Wednesday have the potential to spread very cold air over us, with low level snow possible. So, we can expect: THU = 5-10cm, SAT = 10cm, MON = 5-10cm, TUE/WED =.. continue at janesweather.com (mobile friendly)

Went to Lake Mountain last night (tue 28th) and tried night skiing for the first time. They run it onTuesday nights depending on good snow and weather. There were a few of us out there by headtorch and we all enjoyed skating on the trails. They were skidoo grooming so it was easier once they had done that. Not all trails were open due to safety reasons but enough to have a good ski. There are details on the website about how it works. It was easy to drive up after work from Melbourne and ski for a while on good snow. Just thought I would spread the word as it was quite pleasant (ie not really cold) and when the moon shone through we didn't even need the headtorches as the moonlight was fantastic and it made it quite surreal. Love the place !!

Yes, you can hire anything you need from us. Except beanies and goggles. And you can buy them here, anyway. P:lenty of everything.

Quoting teckel: I doubt that chains will be required on Wednesday, although things could change. If you are disabled, you should find it a lot easier to get around Lake Mountain than Mt Buller. Drop in on the left side of the road as you pass through Narbethong to hire your gear. We can advise you then whether you need snow chains.
thank you, we look forward to it, we have never seen snow before, except on tv, hiring clothes etc no problem? thanks for your reply

^^ Glad you enjoyed it, RHR. :thumbsup: Traffic is only one of several reasons why people should get up there early on weekends.

I was there last Saturday for just some tobogganing with my son and to introduce him to snow before a trip to either Hotham or Falls in August. It was a perfect day for it, sunny at crisp. Most importunely he loved it and keeps asking when we can go back to the snow, so that's a massive result in my books. Mind you it was heaving, and the final few kms to the car park were a nightmare. Mainly thanks to a few people deciding it was appropriate to stop on the ice in a 2wd and then wonder why they had lost traction... It took an age.

I just got back from a day at LM. It was a bit patchy at the start of the trails but very nice up top despite only 10cm cover. It was also pretty crunchy earlier on but softened up nicely later, I wouldn't be surprised if they had some rain/sleet today, it was just on 0C at the carpark. I had to call it a day after about 3 hours as my lower back was giving me some grief. Sadly the White Rabbit is closed, I thought they might have retained it as a bar/ restaurant, so I popped into the Coldstream Brewery for a quick Pale ale on the way home. It was very cosy with an open fire going. Definitely on the wrong side of the city for day trips to the snow, there was roadworks ( 3 guys standing around!) near the entrance to city link on the way to the Bolte and a 3 car pile up at the bottom of the West Gate Bridge, just a typical Friday.

Well, it was a good day today. Not a single complaint from anyone. Everyone came back late. Plenty of snow. :) Snowshoers had a great time as did the snow players. Even though it was a chain day, and every set of chains that we hired out were used, none were broken or damaged, despite reports of other chains littering the roads. We even hired out several of our low profile chains.

I'm sorry you feel that way, Christine. I actually was supporting local businesses, unless you don't consider Narbethong, Taggerty, Alex and Eildon to be local. Is pointing out the pros and cons of various places so terrible? As I said, your facilities are good. The poster asked a question and the determining factor to that poster was price. My response was directed at that consideration alone.

Quoting Marysville Caravan Park: I am disappointed to see "teckel" make a comment about Marysville Caravan Park being expensive. I believe that business in the area should be encouraging visitors to stay in the area and support each other. It is up to the visitor to make a decision on what their budget is, not other businesses. Marysville Caravan Park is a great family park, the closest to Lake Mountain, in Marysville it self. there is a lot going for it as the bookings currently indicate it is a very popular caravan park and clearly not that expensive. Yes Marysville does not have the same amount of accommodation as it did before 2009, but it is worth while checking what is here before moving on if planning to go to Lake Mountain. There is also ski hire shops available in Marysville as well as Narbethong and Lake Mountain.
I had a look at your website last night and the prices for camping looked very much par for the course. Do you have any drying facilities for skiers?
