Sat~2~--~Sun~3 Sep~2017VariableWorld Telemark Day, Southern Hemisphere World Telemark DayThis is the annual day for telemark skiers (and any other backcountry inclined skiers and riders) to get together, share some turns, make new friends and generally enjoy getting out in the mountains. Anyone is welcome to organise an event. At this point there are plans for gatherings at MT HOTHAM and the SNOWY MOUNTAINS. Full details closer to winter. HOTHAM: There are already plans for a camp at JB Plain (near Dinner Plain) for those who want to come to the HOTHAM event for the weekend. We will met for a days skiing at 9am on saturday Sept 2nd (location - resort/ sidecountry or/ backcountry - to be determined via a poll of participants closer to the event). If we have sufficient numbers and interest we will organise something for the sunday as well). NSW EVENT: Full details will be posted closer to the event.

Mon~4~--~Fri~8 Sep~20172bUndulating active Federation Hut, Bungalow Spur, Mt Feathertop, VictoriaXC ski touring snow campingFive day snow camping trip on Mt Feathertop. I will be doing this trip after going to World Telemark Day at Mt Hotham, 2-3 Sept, 2017. I do not intend on skiing Mt Feathertop but rather explore the beautiful ridgeline of the Razorback and around to MUMC hut. Will most likely be based in tents at Federation Hut on the edge of the treeline at the top of Bungalow Spur but may shift camp, depending on conditions.
