Snow Chains

Don't forget, all vehicles travelling The Great Alpine Road must carry diamond pattern chains at all times during the declared snow season and must be fitted where directed.

Most ski fields run chain fitting services during the snow season and can assist you by fitting your wheel chains to your vehicle. Check your ski field websites for up-to-date chain fitting information (check Hotham here and Falls Creek here). 

How To Fit Chains

Chain Fitting Check List

  • Fit chains to driving wheels only.
  • Always test fit chains before a trip.
  • Fit at fitting bays on level ground.
  • If chains fall off or loosen when a vehicle is in motion stop and check brake lines for damage, before re-tensioning.
  • Carry a torch, plastic garbage bag (or tarp) and gloves to make fitting easier.
  • Use correct fitting diamond pattern chains.
  • Tyres must be in good condition with minimal wear.
  • Chains alter your car's handling, take time to readjust your driving and take care!
