Description

Join us on this exciting full day backcountry skiing tour on Etheridge Ridge! This tour is for ambitious skiiers who want to explore off the beaten path. Etheridge Ridge is at the center of the Main Range and overlooks the colossal Mt. Kosciuzko. This ridge receives a lot of windblown snow, which means we will be skiing some incredibly fresh stashes!

Etheridge Ridge features varied terrain which makes for more challenging and interesting skiing. The runs here are relatively short so the best way to make an efficient skin track is to ski the entire ridge. We will have time for a short break at Seamans Hut for lunch. This hut is a lovely quaint structure and memorial.

In this backcountry tour, we will ski outside of the boundaries of the resort. This means we will have to be independent. While there are no ski patrol on duty in the backcountry, rest assured that one of our fully certified mountain guides will be skiing alongside you the whole way.

Each person will carry their own gear. Each skier on this trip will receive a backpack with necessary skiing and safety equipment. We will be using lightweight touring gear so that we can move with more ease and freedom.

There is so much beauty to be seen in this area of the Australian Alps. By sticking to the main path, you are only seeing a fraction of it. That is why we recommend this backcountry ski tour for adventurous, experienced skiiers!

Book today for a skiing experience you will never forget!

If one day of backcountry skiing is not enough, we completely understand. You can join us for another full day backcountry ski tour on Mt. Kosciuszko!
