Victorian Backcountry Festival

Back country fest has opportunities for ski tours, workshops, speakers, films and has a fun ski in outdoor bar

To participate in tours, you need to be able to ski (and also bring all back country gear).  The general entry level for skiing backcountry is confident on blue runs (ie capable on black runs) 

The event is run externally to MUMC but it’s great value (cheap ish weekend cost plus low cost ski tours and free workshops) and an awesome opportunity to get more involved in backcountry skiing / split boarding

Camping will be at JB plain, participants will need snow tent/winter sleeping bag and a sleeping mat with R value above 5. 

Gear requirements (skis/avy transceiver will be arranged closer to the date)
