Now that there is a bit of an Autumn chill in the air, enthusiasm is building for the coming ski season at the Mt Mawson Ski Field.

The STSA Committee met this evening to undertake planning for this weekend’s working bee, but it was realised a number of the STSA stalwart volunteers are not available for this weekend. As a result the next Mt Mawson STSA working bee has been rescheduled to SUNDAY 24th MARCH.

There are plenty of tasks to be undertaken to ensure the ski field is ready to run once the snow arrives, including repairs to some broken panels on the University Tow snow fences, test running the tows including greasing and checking pulleys, and a general clean up of the ticket office, ski patrol room and motor huts.

Volunteers are always welcome on the mountain, so please come up and be involved in supporting Southern Tasmania’s only operating ski field.  Meet at the Lake Dobson gate at 10 am on Sunday 24th March -see you there!

      Hi Vicky, It’s a 30-45 minute walk up a jeep trail. There are some spots on the way where you can use the toboggans with a decent snow cover. Hope you make it up!
