Transport

All trips are by private car, with car pooling organised by the trip leader.  Transport is rationalised as much as possible so as to minimise costs.  If you are not prepared to take your car to the snow, please indicate whether or not you have transport and are able to get to a meeting point which is both convenient for you and your driver.

Day trips usually leave Melbourne early Sunday morning and return Sunday night.

Weekend trips usually leave Melbourne Friday afternoon and return Sunday night.  Note that for trips to Falls Creek / Hotham / Dinner Plain, it can take six to seven hours from Melbourne (sometimes it's necessary to stop to hire skis, for dinner, and for breaks).  Most drivers would prefer to arrive before 11pm, so you should try to be able to leave Melbourne around 3 or 4pm. Leaving after 4pm also tends to make the trip take longer because of peak-hour traffic.

Always check details with the trip leader.
