Ok guys, getting prepared for winter and looking to do some snow trips

Where are the best areas to get into, i know a bunch get gated, so was wondering whats open

Also does craigs hut get much snow, and is it accessible (does it get cut off by track closures) ?

Cheers

Mt Selma is one of the best North of O'Tool's (sort of) & half way between Licoa & Woods point roughly. Also some areas around Woods Point Mt Terrible is good when it's under snow wich it wasn't last year hoping for a better snow season this year. Mt Selma is 1469 m & Mt Terrible is 1316 m So Selma is 153 m higher & can be done as a day trip or weekend trip camping below the snow line. Check out this trip report of Mt Selma:-

Must have a permit to drive over Mt Skeen, & I'm not sure but I think only 4WD CLUBS can get permits. Craig's Hut is closed for winter from Queen's Birthday weekend till Cup weekend.

I hope to do ALOT more snow trips this year.

Mt Terrible was under snow...I did a day trip there last year and the place was covered....not that much that you couldnt drive through thou but enough to take the kids and have a play for a day trip.

Mt Matlock near Woods point is a spot I head to several times through Winter and I find that theres plenty of snow around (I actually got bogged in snow on Matlock Hill last winter). I generally get there via Marysville and head back via Mt Selma & Mt Useful, its a long day but I enjoy it.

Did a couple of snowtrips last year; Mt Selma & Mt Terrible/Matlock with both having plenty of snow. I find Mt Terrible/Matlock a nice drive for a daytrip via Marysville & prefer to do Mt Selma over a full weekend. 1 day 4wding around the Walhalla area, stay overnight at Rawson then head up to Selma the next morning. A couple of pics from both trips;
