We are heading up to Jamieson at the end of July and going to head to Mt Matlock for a look at the snow. Can anyone tell me about some tracks in the area that won't be closed and that we will see some snow on.

Wolfleigh.
It is unlikely that there will be snow at Matlock. Most tracks in snow country will be closed for good reason. Eric.

Wolfy as Matlock is at only 1300 metres the snow in that area is intermittant at best so you'll need some luck to get any on your weekend. If there is a good dump, the Corn Hill Track through to Mt Terrible can get up to 300 deep in places.
Alternatively the Selma Road & South Road to Mt Usefull can be a bit deeper at times. Best option in the Jamieson area is up Mt Skene which is over 1500 metres but requires a permit from 4x4 Victoria.

Thanks for that Crackles, 4wd Vic wanted us to jump through too many hoops just for a weekend trip. I'll have a look at these other spots.

"4wd Vic wanted us to jump through too many hoops just for a weekend trip"
Yes it was dissapointing when they restricted access to Skene due to some ill prepared people taking a shortcut (followed by some ill prepared police officers that got into trouble themselves while rescuing them ;-) We're stll trying to get that decision reversed as while it was great that 4x4 Vic was able to secure access for club members, the general public is pretty much excluded.
To ensure a good snow drive on the tracks I listed you will need to see weather reports with snow to 1000 metres in the week preceding.
