    If you are planning a Mt Skene Snow Trip, be prepared to grab a permit at least 14 days before you go from http://www.fwdvictoria.org.au/downloads.asp.

    Don't go without the permit, as it isn't worth the risk.

    Permit is limited to 10 vehicles including the responsible trip leader......

    We have our club trip booked for 25th July otherwise I would stick my hand up and go with you, so lets hope there is still good snow.

    Only one issue Mic. Who's the responsible leader? I'll chuck in a tentatively yes for this. Absolute insane time of year for me so we'll see...
    We did it last year and it was a blast. Even though I had to cut it short because of clutch issues which I still have nutted out. It was great.

    For the Mt Skene permit you need to be a member of a FWD Victoria affiliated club like the Nissan club etc.
    There should still be plenty of snow around Woods Point, Mt Terrible, Matlock etc. and you won't need a permit to drive around there.

    Mic, which club are you a member of?

    I am a member of a small club in the Yarra Valley called Solid Rock 4x4, which was started by a mate .... I had never been in a club before this one, as I don't normally like the constraints of having to be in a certain place at a certain time - and prefer the flexibility of going & stopping whenever & wherever we like .... but like all things, am actually enjoying it now
