Get out and about on lo­cal moun­tains

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - REGIONAL EXTRA -

WHILE the snow sea­son is wind­ing down, there are still events to en­joy on our lo­cal moun­tains.

Through­out this week­end, you can take in a pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion by David Rosendale, en­com­pass­ing a 12 month pho­to­graphic study of sea­sonal change and en­vi­ron­ment at Falls Creek.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is be­ing held at QT Falls Creek.

This Satur­day you can check out the last leg in the Falls Freestyle Series, which will be con­tested on the medium line at Panorama Ter­rain Park.

At Mt Hotham, Chicks With Stix will take place through­out this week­end, which is a grass­roots level week­end which gets women to­gether to learn new snows­port tricks and make new friends.

Hotham Hero Pass Hold­ers can at­tend the moun­tain’s Hero Pass Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Day this Satur­day to re­ceive some com­pli­men­tary treats.

Satur­day will also see Retro Day at Mt Hotham, where par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to dress up in their most out­ra­geous and colour­ful ski gear and en­joy a day of cel­e­bra­tion, topped off by fire­works and an af­ter party.

This week­end also sees the ac­tion of the Hotham Ju­nior Freeride event at Mt Hotham.

Over at Mt Buller, the moun­tain is host­ing the 2018 Mt Buller Wild West Ad­ven­ture Race this Satur­day, with pairs rac­ing to 10 se­cret check­points to be in run­ning for cash and prizes.

For more in­for­ma­tion on en­ter­ing this race, see the Mt Buller web­site be­low.

At Mt Buf­falo, while snow cover is be­gin­ning to thin out, con­di­tions re­main great for to­bog­gan­ing, cross coun­try ski­ing, snow shoe­ing or sim­ple snow play.

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.
