MOUNT BUFFALO SNOW
10-07-2017 
We have had fair to good snow out of the last three fronts and might get some more later this week. We will provide regular weather and snow updates at https://www.facebook.com/VisitMountBuffalo/.  There are spectacular views of the Alps (Snow covered now) from the gorge and the walks are a great way to see our waterfalls, Granite pinnacles, snow plains and forests. So spoil yourself and "Visit Mount Buffalo" this Winter. See Mount Buffalo Ski School FB page for whats on at Mount Buffalo and Ski School updates https://www.facebook.com/MountBuffaloSkiSchool/

ICE CLIMBING AND MOUNTAINEERING

While not always available - in the main part of winter or after major snow drops followed by clear cold nights there can be good ice and steep snow climbing on the Cresta side of the Hump (South) and in the China Wall area near the Horn - the latter reached by abseiling off the Steel poles in the rock next to the small shelter at the horn car park

Note that you need skis or snow shoes to access the horn as the road is a ski trail in winter with not walking allowed

The Hump in particular is growing in popularity as it has easily accessed and well protected routes

We can provide leaders for this activity if you require

Happy Mountaineering
