A come and try cross-country skiing day trip, cancellable if the weather is bad as it would be even badder for beginners. Skis, stocks and boots can be hired at Snowgum Wodonga, ideally there, as you can be kitted and fitted up beforehand or, alternatively at Mt Beauty (Rocky Valley Ski Hire is good, but book beforehand to save time) on the way up. I have a modest supply of warm headgear, some gloves, raincoats and  mannish over pants (essential, any gender) for lending. Under no circumstances wear jeans or cotton shirts. This trip is for adults and completely compliant, fittish children, with limited or no ski experience to have a journey to the snow and see what works. Depending on numbers and people, a pre-trip get-together at my Glenroy home, maybe on the Thursday evening, would be useful to sort gear, cars etc. Incidentally, Snowgum Wodonga used to do this sort of thing on a commercial basis so if that appeals better………
