EoI - X-C Skiing - Bogong High Plains, 7-15 August
ID = 305

Once again we have been offered the use of the Rover Chalet for a week’s X-C skiing. The chalet is an 11 km ski in from Falls Creek so is well away from the crowds. The chalet is well fitted out with a commercial grade kitchen, mattresses for sleeping on in the loft, internal toilets and hot showers. There is a washing machine and a drying room. 240v power so you can charge your phones even if reception is restricted.

To go in you need to have had experience on skis and to be able to carry a pack. The pack can be kept fairly light as you don’t need many clothes because you can wash and dry them up there.

See the online Preview for more details.
