Festival program launched

We now have a fantastic program for the backcountry festival. Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Falls Creek Cross Country, we have some great telemark clinics and snow shoe tours, which are being offered for free.

A range of people have also offered to lead tours or offer skills workshops, like navigation skills and snow camping 101.

There will be demo skis available for hire, an outdoor bar in the afternoon, and a mini film festival featuring Australian made backcountry films in the evening.

Sunday will see the world telemark day gathering, with skiing both in and out of the resort as an option.

The program is available here.

What now?

  • Please invite your mates and spread the word. Facebook page available here.
  • Please register. This is free and makes planning easier if we know numbers. People who have registered will have first option on getting tickets to the film festival.
  • Start to build some stoke. If posting pics through winter, please feel free to tag us #VICbackcountryfestival
  • We know of one person who is planning to walk and snow shoe to the festival from Walhalla (!!). Where are you coming from?

Thanks to the media outlets are getting behind the festival. The image at the top is from the current issue of Explore Adventure Outdoor Magazine.
