Hey!

I'm studying here from Canada and brought my splitboard with me in case the snow was good here or in NZ and am well keen to get out there. The backcountry isn't exactly a place for soloists so I figure I'd ask where to hear about meet-ups / or if anyone wouldn't mind a tag along.

Hope to hear from you!

I believe Splitfest is happening in 2 weeks time down on the NSW main range, look it up, should be a great way to meet up with fellow boarders.

I don't ride a snow board or ski but I am out there in the Victorian Alpine back country every fortnight from late June until the first weekend of October. So far this season I have been to Mt Buffalo, Mt. Torbreck , Mt Stirling (twice) and Mt Bogong.
I have picked my visits to these places to coincide with some favourable conditions.

And the relevance of that is....?

I am happy to have able bodied , friendly and well equipped units come along with me to the back country snow areas if they wish , and I have indicated clearly where such trips have taken place so far. The next two trips will be to Mt. Feathertop and Mt. Nelse , respectively .

Pity. It would be a privilege to schuss down a slope and then stand around waiting for another unit to walk down.

25th to 28th August - I'll be on the main range with a small group. All on tele skis except for one potential first time splitboarder.
We'll be camping out around wilkinsons creek or nearby that area.

Hey Vanders, would you be keen to have another member if my tent arrives in time? If not might just join you for a day, if that's okay! Know the area well, on touring setup so wouldn't slow you down.

Will try in here. Looking to join a day trip group Saturday if anyone is willing.

First time visitor to Thredbo. Not significant BC experience (half a dozen day tours around Myoko area).
Strong skier, got the basic gear (skins, beacon, shovel and probe) and fit (but average climber compared to some of the mountain goats!)
Let me know, cheers

I'm thinking about heading up to NSW from Vic for the weekend 17th/18th. Don't want to head out solo as I haven't been out that way in winter before. Pretty agnostic about where, and happy to tag along if someone if going out for just a day or for the weekend. Reasonably fit, lots of snow camping experience, not a lot of touring experience. Skins and shovel, but no beacon, so if it looks sketchy I'll be bailing.

We did kosci on fri
Summit ridge in the whiteout, the saddle disappeared right then in front of us
Weather followed us at our pace all the way back to the swimming pool
The start of 18 Hours of rain
Was a good navigation exercise

Good end to the trip w 4 days touring

Well i'm back from all points North & West. Had to bail on another Hotham season to attend Glastonbury and then cycle around France/Spain, tough life....
Just drove across for a month of getting whatever i can. (Weather obs; Nullarbor was fine and sunny)

We picked up one of the wise men in Norseman and he guided us across.....

So, the plan is to head up Bogong tomorrow, hunker probably at Michell Hut and hope for snow, stay until Saturday or bail if conditions are damp.....
After that possibly Feathertop next week or other options, weather dependent. I'm on a splitboard with a black helmet, see you out there....

I'm heading out (NSW) on Wednesday if anyone wants to catch up for a walk and a slide. Preferably out of CP but I suppose that will depend on whether the road is clear...
