Lake Mountain

We went to Lake Mountain on 12th July 2008 (Saturday), that day is the first time we (myself, Ryan & Noel) experience real SNOW.

Lake Mountain is about 90KM from our home in Heidelberg Heights. we took about 90 minutes drive up the mountain. The journey there is wonderful, beautiful scenery all the way there. we drive pass some farm, winery etc ... not like driving in the north south highway nothing to see.

We stop at Marysville for lunch and rent all the equipment before we go up to the mountain, Marysville is 20 minutes from Lake Mountain. we paid like A$18 for adults, it come with a toboggan, waterproof boot, waterproof pant. I can't remember how much we paid for the kids. this is how Ryan & Noel after suite up !
