Hey all,
Looking for choices for a day trip to the snow with the family. We live about an hour south of Melbourne, so a huge drive would not be too good. We just want the kids to see the snow, have a toboggan ride or 2 and head back home in the arvo. Any ideas?
Cheers Chris...

If you look on channel 603 for the snow report, they will give you the options on where to go. Other than that , i cant help.

Mt Buller as I doubt there is any natural snow elsewhere at the moment. (Buller has snow making on their toboggan run)
If it does snow then Lake Mountain, Baw Baw or Donna Buang are closer & cater more towards snow play.

As you live south of Melbourne I would suggest Mt Baw Baw or Mt St Gwinear both are easy access and cheaper than the main resorts.

See Snow web cams to see who has snow.

Mt Baw Baw can be found Baw Baw web site

Mt St Gwinear is/was a favourite for the kids as you can do Snow, Thompson Dam and Wahalla in a day if there is little snow... St Gwinear web site.

After that Lake Mountain, then the bigger resorts...

Good luck

Conditions are generally rubbish at the moment.

Lake Mtn has snowmaking on the 'boggan run and it looks OK. That'd be your best bet unless you want to wait 'til week 2 of the school hols. Things may improve.

Lake Mtn will be chokkas cos of the school hols so get there early.

See snow reports here:

If there's a good wet blow from the SW then Baw Baw may acquire some white stuff. That can be a good place for a play but again get there early unless you like multiple waits in queues and slow moving traffic on the way up.
