Backcountry festival 2020 – dates and location set

After receiving resounding feedback about the 2nd Victorian Backcountry festival, we have decided to lock in dates and locations for 2020.

It will be a three day festival, held from Friday to Sunday, September 4 – 6.

Due to the huge level of support from the Hotham community and businesses and attendees, we will keep the festival at Hotham.

We will keep the basic format – lots of tours and workshops, speaker’s program, outdoor bar, AST 1 avalanche training, and demo village. We will be based out of The General again for briefings and speakers program. Spreading the festival over three days will allow us to fit more in and reduce double up. There will be another multi day trip after the festival for intermediate to advanced skiers and riders who want to ski bigger terrain with a group. This one is likely to be to Mt Bogong (September 7 – 10)

There is still time to provide feedback. Check the online form here. We’re getting some really great feedback on how to make it a better event, so please take a few minutes to let us know your thoughts.

If you want to get involved in the festival in any way, please get in touch: Cam.walker@foe.org.au

See you out there.
