Attention OXOs

All club activities are suspended until further notice in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation. The club is following directives from the University and MUSport, which will be an ongoing process for the foreseeable future. The latest developments can be found at

All trips, Tuesday meetings and Thursday socials are suspended. The clubrooms are no longer open for general use - if personal items need to be removed, please contact a committee member. There will also be no gear hire for the time being. In light of advice from Melbourne University and the government, this is the safest course of action to reduce transmission.

MUMC committee will be discussing the possibility of small-group club trips as the situation unfolds and as we receive more advice, but doing our part for the safety of club members and the general public is currently our priority.

We recommend you follow the advice available on for your safety and to help those around you.

We look forward to resuming our activities with you all when it is safe to do so! Needless to say, we will be itching to get outdoors once this has run its course!

Thank you for your understanding,

Charlie and I have been talking about an intro to splitboarding trip at the beginning of the next snow season. Splitboarding is a way to take your snowboard into the back country and explore non-groomed terrain.

Currently MUMC doesn't have any splitboards and ROC only has a couple so we would have to figure something out. You need to be a competent snowboarder (easy down blue runs) to be able to join this trip. Trip is of course also completely dependent on the snow conditions, and with summer approaching it's hard to guess what winter will bring. Currently thinking about the end of June, but  that can absolutely change.

We are stoked for some snow!
