Bogong Snow Fun Day

The crew had a blast at Lake Mountain Alpine Resort on Saturday as we hit up the cross-country ski trails with Rovers from around the state. To avoid a rather early start, we made use of our property in Healesville, Elliott Lodge, to split the drive into two more manageable sections.
Emerging from the car, it was clear that the overnight rain/snow forecast had swung more into the rain spectrum, visibility was slightly affected by fog and exposed sections of the resort were quite windy, nevertheless we geared up, clipped into our skis and hit the slopes.
Those of us more familiar with the snow headed off on our own to explore, whilst those who still needed help finding their feet went into the beginner lesson. They emerged from the lesson with a newfound respect for skiing, a bit more skill and knowhow and had to be peeled away from their new friends before being thawed out in the car.
Thanks go to Bogong Rover Chalet for organising such an excellent day, even if the weather didn’t completely cooperate!
