Given the good snow depth I am happy to lead a Snowcamp on the 9/10 September weekend. Depending on who applies, the destination will be somewhere on Heathy Spur, nice and high if the weather is good, snugged in behind the hill if the wind is up.

If the fitness and experience of the party allows, we would go off to Tawonga Huts instead, but Heathy Spur is the more likely option. I have two 4 season tents providing space for four persons, the necessary stoves, snow shovel et cetera. However a good warm sleeping bag is essential as are off-track skis. I may be able to get a lend of one winter bag if needs be.

Once camped we can go off and explore Baker’s Spur, for example, or if over at Tawonga huts, up onto the Jaithmathangs and on Sunday across to Mt Jim.
