Sat~15~Jul~--~Sun~27~Aug 2017Undulating Active - Expressions of interestXC skiingMid July to late August. Expressions of interest for a weekend or 3 days skiing around Kiandra. Possible destinations include 4 Mile and Broken Dam huts, Tabletop Mountain and Tantangara Mountain. I don't want to nominate a specific date because there is often insufficient snow in this area. I'm proposing to select a weekend that suits those who have expressed interest after a good snowfall.
Sat~22~--~Sun~23 Jul~20172BDay tripsXC skiingTwo days of day trips; our starting points and routes will depend on snow and weather conditions. I’ll be staying in Jindabyne and can offer cheap accommodation to a small number of people (first in first served). I’ll be staying in Jindabyne at least an extra day so there’s an opportunity for a third day trip on Monday.
