Not skiing but snowshoeing but hopefully still of interest.
Weekend at Mt Stirling camping at Bluff Spur and Kings Saddle. I was impressed by the standard of huts and signage. Wasn't expecting firewood. The expanse of alpine area was impressive.

Nice pictures and report Sean and no worries on the snow shoeing. Our intrepid Mr. Tee was once a devout snowshoer :thumbs:

Thanks for the trip report. I used to snow shoe at Mt. Stirling quite a bit.
I love Mt. Stirling. Come again to Mt.Stirling and do the TBJ/ Howqua Gap hut/ Howqua Gap Track/ GGS Hut/TBJ tour in 2020. I will do that one on skis and skins in 2020. I have been up to Mt. Stirling three times this XC ski season. The summit on a sunny day, as you have discovered is one the true delights of the Vic. Alps.
