Snow chasers are being advised to give the Barrington Tops a miss this winter due to poor road conditions.

The Forestry Commission says the Barrington Tops Forest Road, which is the main access point from the coast, remains closed after major structural damage was sustained during the March floods.

Work is under way to repair the road but it’s not expected to be finished before next winter.

Forestry says other roads in the area just can’t cope with the volume of traffic.

If you’re looking an alternative, areas to the north such as Nundle, Walcha and Guyra are expecting good snow falls this week.
