The club’s snow activities are arranged through a WhatsApp group. This is so we can arrange trips at short notice when the weather is looking good.

CROSS COUNTRY SKIING
Within the club we have a keen group of cross country skiers who regularly ski the High Plains during the winter months and are usually led by experienced skier Sue Cardwell. The group welcomes newcomers to this exhilarating pastime
Each year we offer downhill skiing as an alternative to the more challenging and physically demanding pursuit of cross country skiing. Night skiing at Falls Creek is becoming increasingly popular amongst members and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
There’s nothing quite like setting up camp in the snow and waking in the morning to a pristine landscape just begging to be skied and explored. A number of our members lead regular snow camping trips and you’re more than welcome to come along and give it a try if you have overnight bushwalking experience plus some basic ability.
The Club’s snowshoes have proved one of the most popular items of hire equipment and anyone who can walk can snowshoe. What better way to enjoy our fantastic winter wonderland than by a gentle stroll in the snow?
Refer to the ‘equipment hire’ page under ‘Members’ for details on how to hire the club’s snowshoes. They are ‘Yowies’ – here is a picture of what they look like (from the official Yowies webpage).
