    hi all
    as part of the festival this year, there will be a 3 day trip to Feathertop, which will happen SEPT 9,10 11. The idea is that if you're fit, and experienced (at least intermediate) and want to step up your skiing/ riding in the backcountry, then this may be for you.

    It's 2 nights camping. While there is no charge for doing the trip, you will need to have your own set up and camping gear. Bookings now open. Thanks to Daniel for leading this one.

    Any leads on hire gear for those wanting to try splitboarding as part of the festival? I know there are a couple of places in NSW that offer splitboard hire, but I haven't found any in Vic.
