Glorious spring weather on the mountains
DON’T FORGET to enjoy the sunny weather on local mountains as the snow season heads towards its end.
Journey up to Falls Creek and check on the on mountain activities and attractions.
At Mt Hotham, you can see the action of the Spring Club from September 22-23.
The event is open to all ages and both skiers and snowboarders can compete.
Action continues at Mt Buller, with the Pond Skim National Championships to draw a crowd this Saturday.
The mountain is also hosting an auction of chairs from their iconic Blue Bullet chairlift ahead of the lift’s retirement at the end of the season, and this will also take place on Saturday, wih funds raised going to the Mansfield Hospital Auxiliary.
At Mt Buffalo, while snow cover is beginning to thin out, at the time of going to press there was still snow cover for toboganning and other simple activities.
Whatever mountain you’re visiting, keep an eye on snow cams and ski reports, or ask at your local ski hire business or tourism information centre to find out current snow levels, snow chain fitting advice, and weather at resorts around the area.
