Hi all New to this site. In my dotage I have decided to get involved with a little bc snowshoeing in NSW - Canberra based. Purchased some msr Lightnings in the US sales and am now looking at how best to build up to good, safe whitish bc adventures. By way of background I am decrepit but the joints all work, I used to ski patrol at Smiggins and have some xc experience (60s and 70s) plus have lots of bushwalking experience and still capable of 15-20km a day - did Frenchmans Cap and Tharwa - Munyang last summer. First off a couple of good day trips, Perisher or Selwyn seem appropriate but what distance and any issues with the logistics, gear I need to be aware of? I will do these with my partner who is quite intrepid but no snow experience.
