If you have not yet signed up i the you need to... or else i dont konw that you are coming....

I will post updated trip details here in the coming days, please keep an eye on this space.

At the moment the plan is:

Start:  Leave Saturday morning, meeting at clubrooms at 8am. Drive to Mt St Gwinear as this currently looks like the best bet for good snow coverage, and its relatively close.

Tanner is driving up early Sunday Morning.

What we will be doing:

-Leave cars in the carpark

-Carry all tents, food and equipment in our backpacks and ski to where we will camp the night.

-Set up camp close to junction of Tullicouty Trail and Summit Trail, Near Tullicouty Glen. (http://www.stgwinear.info/trail_map.pdf)

-Camp (one/two nights?) in the snow. Be prepared for cold weather! There will be no other way for you to warm up than in your tent and sleeping bag!

-Spend our days out skiing the trails, building sculptures in the snow and doing generally snowy stuff. Possibly ski over to Baw Baw for a day

-Last day: Pack up, ski back to cars then drive home quite exhausted.
