Murray Valley Bushwalkers News and Events Update April 11 2017
Hi all
The optimists amongst us have already pronounced 2017 is going to be a great snow season - 20cm in April its gotta be right? Well lets just see what eventuates - but seriously the Mt Hotham road was closed yesterday morning (April 10) - I cannot recall an April road closure before. But the dramatic weather was accurately forecast - no wonder the 11 members walking the Bon Accord spur last Saturday had a spring in their step! They definitely didnt want to be caught out. Snow enthusiasts do not despair when you scan our program. We are the masters of just in time event programming - snowshoeing and skiing events will materialise pretty much the same time that the real snow and not this pretend stuff does!
