The festival

Backcountry festival Falls Creek, Saturday September 1 and 2, 2018

Celebrating World Telemark Day and all things backcountry – tele, split boarding, cross country, snow shoeing & alpine touring

Our vision is to host a grass-roots gathering at Falls Creek 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. Most activities will start from the Windy Corner nordic centre (above the top carpark), so will be easy to get to if you normally ski or ride in resort.

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, and films and presentations in the evening.

We hope you can join us for the first Australian 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, the more ideas the better. There is still plenty of room in the program for additional activities (check here for a list of particular things we are looking for).

Please get in touch: cam.walker@foe.org.au

This is a free, volunteer run event. Falls Creek resort charges an entry fee. We’re working with a range of community groups and businesses to make this a great day. You join the events at your own risk. We do not have insurance coverage for participants.
