Glo­ri­ous spring weather on the moun­tains

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Regional Extra - - NEWS -

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.
