The festival

Backcountry festival, Mt Hotham, September 4 – 6, 2020

Now in it’s third year, the VIC BC Fest aims to celebrate all things backcountry – tele, split boarding, cross country, snow shoeing, ski mountaineering & alpine touring and mountain culture.

Our vision is to host a grass-roots gathering at Mt Hotham for backcountry skiers and riders of all abilities.  If you’re interested in any form of human powered adventure in the backcountry, you should be there. Beginners to advanced, all are welcome.

We strive to host an event which is welcoming and inclusive. We encourage women to get involved in offering workshops and tours, and aim to have good diversity in the speaker’s program.

There will be guided trips – both in and out of resort – plus clinics and workshops, an outdoor bar in the best spirit of BC festivals, a speakers program, and films and presentations in the evenings. In 2020, the festival has morphed into a three day event. We aim to make the events accessible for the widest range of people. It is a 100% volunteer effort and in previous years the vast majority of components of the festival have been offered free of charge.

We hope you can join us for the 3rd Victorian backcountry festival.

Get involved

If you like the idea of the backcountry community getting together, then please get involved: offer a workshop or clinic, bring ideas or run an info stall, or join one of the festival working groups. The more ideas the better!
