    Trip Report A visit to the Western Faces 24-25th August

    An account of a brief sojourn out back last month - our only real chance at classic mid-winter conditions for 2020. I don't consider myself a writer but I felt the need to put some words together. https://www.tysonmillar.com/blogged/2020/9/6/one-shot-winter I also did a brief side-country visit...

    Main Range Autumn wander - Kosci Main Range Circuit

    Drove out from Melbourne for a brief walkabout in Kosci this weekend- drove up Talangatta valley, and into Corryong via the Gibb Range Road and the Nariel valley. Lovely drive, with some signs of the bush recovering from fire and fire damage in Nariel and Corryong outskirts - fencing repair and...

    Trip Report A first Main Range amble

    As a Mexican who mainly skis the rolling Bogong High Plains out of Falls Creek, I’ve never headed out to the Main Range - put off by the long drive and intimidated by the amazing pictures of those Western Faces. However, having more recently skied Bogong, Feathertop, Nelse and the Fainters, and...

    It is a long story but while hiking the Main Range between 6.2.19 and 9.2.19 in the worst Green season weather I have ever experienced up there I became very ill. Thankfully it was not a solo trip and the other walkers helped me get to Thredbo Top station and down to...

    Main Range Hannels Spur and Mt Kosi in autumn

    Inspired by the news on the Hannels Spur thread that a work party had recently cleared the top part of the spur I set out for the Main Range on Wednesday from Melbourne. I set out from the Geehi Flats at 4pm, and walked along the 4WD track along the Geehi river and then set up the ridge -...

    I drove up to NSW for my annual spring NSW snow trip to the KNP. Golly Gosh ! that is a long way from Melbourne in one day. It was a bit cloudy at Lake Hume when I stopped for lunch. By the time I got near Corryong the view of the Main range was somewhat...

    October 2017. When will the gate from Perisher to C.P.open ?

    Hi I know the 2017 white season is just starting but a man must plan these interstate snow trips. When exactly in October do you think the N.P.W.S will open the gate and send the snow plough through this year ?. Usually it is on the second weekend of the month...

    NSW Main Range Map

    G'day all, I'm looking at producing a retail map of the NSW Main Range. The goal is to produce a topographic map which is better suited to backcountry activities than current offerings. If it goes ahead the map would be made available in both print and digital formats. I'm looking at a scale...

    Trip Report Day trip to Tenison Woods Knoll

    Twynam North Spur wasn't enough so it was back out there again this weekend to run Strzelecki Creek. Real hero snow, a little windy, the run down gave spectacular views of the gushing falls, I always like this run. Saw a brace of 4 gliders surfing the updraft over the main range, one cruised...

I'm a splitboarder looking for people to ride with this weekend, plan on hiking from Charlotte Pass to the main range on Saturday morning and camping there 'til Tuesday arv. I'm hoping to hit whatever steeps look rideable. This will be my third annual split and...
