Located near the Snowy Hill carparks, this cache is located on the track form the Snowy Hill Carpark - Lake Mountain Summit walking track.
Lake Mountain is an all year round location. In winter months the area can be covered in 60 cm of snow, in other months it is worth a visit with fantastic walks and scenery. The area was severly burnt in the Black Saturday Fires and the resort has had a hard time getting back on its feet - but the bush is slowly recovering. The Alpine ash will take a long time to recover but - if at all, but the Snow gums are gradually getting a bit of height. Prior to the fires I used to ski and snow shoe around this area - there is a 5 km Snowy Hill loop track which very very few people ever seem to ski- never groomed. The tracks have overgrown a bit and up until recent they have been telling people to avoid the area. The cache is on a track between the Snowy Hill car park and the Lake Mountain Summit. The cache was placed in Winter after a 50 cm dump of snow. My GPS was all over the place - minimal Satellites- but hey the snow was falling whilst we placed it. The hint is to walk 50 meters past the track junction. ( Update.. today we went for another snoe shoe - another good fall of snow but the satellites were smiling). Note: you will get charged an entry fee in winter. If you are up for a walk look for my other 2 caches not too far away. ** Do not attempt this cache in inclement weather- either hot or cold or on TFB days. Telstra phone coverage is very patchy here. ( If it is snowing heavy - you may note get a good GPS signal)
