MOUNT BUFFALO SNOW CONDITIONS
19-07-2017 
Both Cresta and Dingo Dell have good snow play and tobogganing and the Horn Road is fair to good for cross country skiing. We provide regular weather and snow updates at https://www.facebook.com/VisitMountBuffalo/.  There are also spectacular views of the Alps from the gorge and our walking tracks are a great way to see our waterfalls, granite pinnacles, snow plains and forests. So spoil yourself and "Visit Mount Buffalo" this Winter.

ICE CLIMBING AND MOUNTAINEERING

AT MOUNT BUFFALO

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

  Mount Buffalo Ski School can provide leaders for this activity if you require

Happy Mountaineering
