Yes, you can!  

Our on-mountain equipment and clothing hire outlet stocks a large range of sizes in both shell and insulated jackets and pants. As well as snow boots to keep your feet nice and dry. If wanting to xc-ski or undergo a kid snowboard lesson, we also have equipment available for those snow sports.

The only things you cannot hire are gloves, socks and beanies, due to hygiene regulations. 

Don’t stress though, we have a range of kids through to adults gloves and beanies for sale in our retail outlet up on the mountain. With gloves starting around $20, you’ll be set to tackle the wintery conditions. 

Toboggans are available for hire from our Rental Department for $15 each per day, with moving carpet included.

Will I need wheel chains if I am planning to drive to Lake Mountain Alpine Resort? select-arrow

On occasions, due to heavy snow fall, it is necessary to carry and fit snow chains to two-wheel drive vehicles or engage 4×4 or snow conditions on all wheel drive vehicles. Please check your vehicle’s requirements before heading to the snow. If it is a chain declared day, only people with 2WD cars will need to hire chains before driving up the mountain to Lake Mountain. 

Car tyre size is needed for this process. Please head to either Lake Mountain Ski Hire, Mystic Mountain, Cross Country Ski Hire or Marysville Ski Centre to hire chains. No chains are available for hire at the resort. 

To be informed if chains are required, before you leave in the morning check our website homepage for any alerts or our Instagram and Facebook. There are also traffic advisory signs when entering Marysville to look out for. Alpine conditions can change quickly and if necessary, chain days may be called on the day.
