If the snow is down low enough you can walk from Cumberland picnic area to Snowy Hill ner Lake Mountain.

Lake Mountain, Torbreck (might be vehicle access issues there) are the closest. After that, it's the Baw Baw.

I did see somewhere that Mt. Juliet near Healesville had some good snow on it during the winter and somebody walked up it.
