Backcountry skiing involves skiing on snow not accessible by chairlifts. We use cross country, telemark or backcountry skis to walk up, slide across and shred down slopes.

Accommodation varies from ski resort villages to snow camping in temperatures dipping well below zero degrees.

2018 will be the year the Backcountry Skiing activity returns to MUOC from a five year hiatus. We plan to run trips ranging from beginner cross country day trips to multi day backcountry backpacking trips.

The Victorian Alps are a highlight of Australia, and seeing them on skis is undoubtedly the best way to be amongst them!
