With the demise of SkiGia in Hobart, I’m getting enquiries about snow chain hire in the south and I don’t know of any alternatives.

Do you know of anywhere in the south that hires chains? Please comment below if you do.

I've been involved with Mt Mawson since 1990 as a volunteer and I'm a member of the Oldina Ski club. I'm into skiing, a bit of snow boarding, snow shoeing and I'm partial to taking the odd photo.

      Hi Rosie, there’s a little snow on the ground up there, (have a look at our web cams). Some more snow is forecast this weekend (see our forecast page for details). The Government huts are just below Lake Dobson which is at 1000M altitude. So if there’s snow on the ground on the ski field and snow is forecast, it would be wise carrying chains.

      See this page for Government Huts booking details: http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/index.aspx?sys=News%20Article&intID=2593
