the adventure of skiing in the backcountry, exploring beyond the ski resorts, breaking new tracks through snowgums and carving turns in fresh snow. Enjoy the beauty of the Australian snow country.
Our activities include cross country touring, telemark skiing, alpine touring and track skiing. Members interests are diverse. Some like leisurely day trips 'bushwalking on snow' while others look for steep slopes to carve turns on untracked snow. Some will base themselves in a lodge; others may camp out on snow overnight or do extended back country treks.
However it is done, skiing the backcountry is central to the club's philosophy.
skied cross country before? Don't worry, we have instruction and trips especially for beginners.
Why not join us today and find out what you've been missing.
Our monthly meetings have interesting presentations and speakers. See below. Visitors and prospective members are welcome. If you are not sure if the club is right for you, come along to a meeting and talk to members.

She has an affinity with the Australian Alps having started skiing the Ozzy hills at the age of two. Nat still spends time in the Australian backcountry under the stars and in a tent to ski the steeps of the Main Range and Victorian High Country. She also competes in Freeride events around the world and featured in the film; Shifting Ice, Changing Tides, a film about an all-female crew that sailed and skied around Greenland making observations of climatic conditions along the way.
