Come and join me on this fun and informative full day introduction to backcountry skiing, as we ski on the awe-inspiring NSW (New South Wales) Main Range, Australia, a skiers paradise full of the interesting and captivating landscape, terrain, flora and fauna that Australia is known for, whilst also teaching you the basics of this magnificent activity.

Nestled within the Great Dividing Range, the NSW Main Range contains some of the highest peaks in Australia, including the highest, Mt. Kosciuszko. The skiing conditions are excellent, as the cool, alpine climate, fresh snow and sheer size of the range means we will be able to learn and ski in a relatively peaceful environment, whilst also discovering some of the fascinating scenery.

We will meet at one of the main areas of the range, either Perisher, Thredbo, Guthega or Dead Horse Gap, in the morning, before heading off in earnest to ski. We will be teaching you the basics and necessities needed to enjoy and enhance your backcountry skiing experiences, such as equipment to use, navigation and avalanche safety.

Along the way we will encounter some of the brilliant flora and fauna native to Australia, such as gumtrees, native wildflowers, and if we’re lucky, brumbys and kangaroos!

At the end of the day we hope you will have the confidence to continue learning about backcountry skiing, while also falling a little bit more in love with this special part of Australia.
