It is required by law to carry chains when travelling to Mount Baw Baw during the declared snow season.

Chains must be carried during the declared snow season (June 1st - October 31st) regardless of snow conditions.

Diamond pattern chains are preferable due to the steep gradient of the access road. We recommend chain hire at Neerim south, at Bawbaw sports.

Chain Hire is not available at the Resort - so be sure to plan ahead. YOU WILL BE DENIED ACCESS TO THE RESORT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE WHEEL CHAINS.
