Chains must be carried during the snow season regardless of snow conditions. Vic Roads clearly state this requirement for all Alpine Resorts. Diamond pattern chains are preferable due to the steep gradient of the access road.
Chain Hire is not available at the Resort - so be sure to plan ahead.
Upon entry to the Resort, you will be directed by Mountain Staff where and when to fit your chains. Depending on the snowfall this generally takes place once you have passed the Gate Entry. It is your responsibility to know how to fit wheel chains and ensure they are the correct size. If in doubt please ask your chain retailer for instructions.
We recommend that you bring; gloves, a plastic sheet and a torch (if fitting at night) for when you are required to fit and remove chains.
YOU WILL BE DENIED ACCESS TO THE RESORT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE WHEEL CHAINS.
Quick tips for Parking.
- Fit chains when you park, if heavy snow or bad weather is forecast.
- Leave your car in gear.
- Turn the front wheels away from the slope.
- Leave the hand brake off.
- Lift the windscreen wipers up or leave them down covered with a plastic bag.
