    9th April. It's snowing heavily at the moment at Lake Mountain. Entry to the mountain at this time of year is free. So take advantage of the school holidays. Hire all your gear at Mystic Mountains Ski Hire in Narbethong (on the left side of the highway) - probably the only ski hire that will be open. Edit: At this stage, I don't think the snow will last beyond Monday.

    It appears the snow hasn't lasted the night. :( Rain, combined with an inconsiderate bastard driving all over it in his 4WD has destroyed the snow at least on the toboggan run. There maybe good snow though, up on the higher ski trails (which can be accessed by snowplayers at this time of year.

    I put out no snow related advertising on the street and pulled it on this thread. A couple enquired but I suggested they didn't bother going. But I had good custom from locals needing winter clothing :)

    How come they haven't started making snow with their refrigeration snow-maker?

    If they make it now, it will probably melt on the ground or be washed away with heavy rain. I'm sure there will be plenty at least on the main toboggan run for opening weekend (10th to 12th June) which is still a month away.
