Still plenty on at the snow fields
SNOW fun is drawing to a close, but there are still plenty of ways to enjoy local mountains. Those at Falls Creek are looking forward to the McKays Snow. Dirt. Road. Enduro on October 6, with the course taking riders 23 kilometres through various terrains for a total descent of 1750 metres. At Mt Hotham, children can enjoy the fun of Lego at Big D as LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne is bringing LEGO® fun from the city to Hotham these September school holidays until October 7. At Mt Buller, Yoplait Petit Miam Kids’ Week is taking place until Friday, with plenty of fun for the kids to enjoy. Mt Buller will also host 2018 ski season closing festivities on October 6. At Mt Buffalo, the snow cover is still sufficient for sightseeing and snowplay, and possibly tobogganing (depending on current conditions – check on ski reports as below). 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.
