Wheel Chains Info

On occasion, due to heavy snowfall or predicted heavy snowfall, two-wheel drive vehicles will be required to carry and fit wheel chains. Wheel chains are not required for all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive vehicles, however it is highly recommended that you are familiar with how to engage the all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive setting in your vehicle, especially if you are hiring a car.

Please check current road conditions, snow reports & forecasts before you leave.

Road signs in the township of Marysville will also indicate whether chains are required, in addition to the Lake Mountain website and social media channels.

Always remember to wear appropriate clothing to keep you warm and dry while you fit chains.

Wheel chains are available for hire in Marysville, Narbethong and the Black Spur, it is extremely important that you understand how to fit the wheel chains prior to arriving to the resort.
