Through the snow season it is a legal requirement that all vehicles entering the holiday resort carry snow chains. This consists of AWD and 4WD vehicles and applies from the season opening on June 9 through to the last day time of the season on Stainless Steel Chain October 7.

The sheltered approach to Falls Creek means the street is not usually affected by snow and ice conditions. In most cases chains are only fit during or straight after weighty snowfall, and usually only for the final 5 – 10km. Keep an eye on ice patches however as these can develop with clear conditions, particularly in early morning.

Snow chains can be hired from numerous outlets in Myrtleford and Mt Beauty on the way to Falls Creek. For date information on chain fitting status make sure you check the snow report web page on your way.
