Fun in the snow

Snowcam image from Mt Field/Mt Mawson just before 2pm today.
DUE to extensive black ice and snow drifts, the Lake Dobson Rd at Mt Field National Park remains closed to all but four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles with chains fitted.

Low-clearance all-wheel-drives may have difficulties due to deep ruts in the road. Chains must be fitted at the bottom of the mountain, near the Mt Field Visitor Centre.

There is no access to the snow in two-wheel-drive vehicles even if they have chains fitted.

Rangers will be controlling access to the mountain, and all vehicles will need a current Parks Pass which can be obtained from the visitor centre.

Anyone planning on visiting should check or call Mt Field on 6288 1149 for up to date conditions.

All facilities at the base of the mountain are open.

The @MountMawson Twitter feed reports that the Mawson and University ski tows are both operating at the ski field today.

The Gordon River road beyond Maydena is open to 4WD only with extreme care.
