During the snow season it is a legal necessity that all vehicles entering the vacation resort bring snow chains. This consists of AWD and 4WD vehicles and applies from the growing season opening on June 9 to the last day of the growing season on October 7.
The Transmission Chain sheltered method of Falls Creek means the road is not usually suffering from snow and ice conditions. In most cases chains are just fit during or straight after weighty snowfall, and usually limited to the final 5 – 10km. Be mindful of ice patches however as these can form with clear conditions, especially in early morning.
Snow chains can be hired from several outlets in Myrtleford and Mt Beauty on the way to Falls Creek. For up to date details on chain fitting status make sure you check the snow report web page on your way.
