    hi all

    we now have the program locked in. It will happen out of Falls Creek over the weekend of Sept 1 & 2.

    Clinics and tours: intro to telemark & snow shoeing, navigation, avalanche basics, tours to Mt Nelse and Spion Kopje, snow camping 101. Outdoor bar, and lots of fun. And its all free (the resort charges any entry fee).

    Speakers include:

    • Stephen Curtain, who made the classic Australian telemark film Winter Dreaming
    • Matt O’Keeffe, head of Falls Creek ski patrol
    • Tamara Hutchins from Melbourne Girls Outside, one of the fastest growing female adventure groups in the country
    • Two-time Olympic skier and Hotham skier Katya Crema
    • There will be presentations from Josh Fletcher, of the newly formed chapter of Protect Our Winters, and Simon Murray from Mountain Sports Collective, the backcountry users group.
    Program is here: https://backcountry-festival.com/whats-on/

    Everyone is welcome.
