Wheel chains can be hired at Mansfield, Merrijig, or Mirimbah. It's best to organise these in advance to ensure the right size for your vehicle is available. Wheel chains are not available for hire once on you are already on the mountain.
A small number cars can not fit chains in accordance with the vehicle’s user manual. Please check your manufacturers guidelines before hiring chains. Alternative transport options to the resort are available.
Trailers cannot be towed behind vehicles when the road conditions require wheel chains to be fitted.
Depending on snow and road conditions, vehicles may be required to fit chains. When there is snow or icy conditons wheel chains are fitted for your safety and the safety of others. Please ensure that you know how to fit your chains correctly. Fit your chains when directed by signage or a Resort Management officer.
Please also note - drivers of diesel vehicles may wish to ensure they refill with ALPINE DIESEL. This ensures vehicles can start in very cold conditions.
Carrying wheel chains is not compulsory outside of the winter season however guests may choose to hire snow chains prior to arrival in Mansfield or Mirimbah.
