Snow Shoeing & Winter Walks
Snow shoeing is an excellent way to explore all of Lake Mountain during the white season (June – September). Hire a set of snow shoes from the on-mountain Rentals department and the entire Cross-country ski trail network becomes yours to explore.
Additionally, when snow conditions permit, the exclusive 5km Snow Shoe Trail Loop creates an amazing opportunity to discover Lake Mountain’s heath.
Discover the beautiful alpine environment with our Winter Walks, Options include;
Summit Walk – 5km return
Reach the highest point of Lake Mountain, and enjoy the breathtaking views over the valley below. The walk begins with a moderate incline from ‘Gerratys Car Park’ in the Village area, then levels into a gentle climb, with beautiful lookouts along the way.
Leadbeaters Walk- 600m return
