Spend a week skiing and touring in the main range, primarily around Mt Townsend, Kosciuszko and Twynam. 

Obviously this trip will be dependent on the conditions of the day and the abilities of those on the trip. It’s kind of inspired from what I remember doing a 4 day hiking trip in the area. Add an extra day or two for unexpectedly bad weather, bad conditions or unexpectedly good conditions (we want to hang around). Here is a link to a pdf which explains the idea a bit more in depth, and with some pretty photos to look at:


Expecting people to have had experience camping in the snow, as this will be almost a week long. Hopefully there will be several trips to Stirling, Falls Creek etc where you can get your feet wet (literally) for a weekend if you want to come on this one.
