This is where you can stay up to date on big events, hang outs, shred sessions.
This will be a grass-roots gathering 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.
The rise of a new backcountry culture, which is often young and focused on finding steep terrain, is now meshing with the ‘older’ cross country ski community as new participants spend more time camping and touring in the mountains. But until now there has been no single event in Australia where this community can gather to ski and ride, share skills, meet new riding buddies and have fun.
'BARRY' LIMITED EDITION VIC BC FEST TEE
Order By August 18th
As part of our fundraising efforts for enviro causes during the #VICbackcountryfestival we've produced a tshirt with a great image of our Victorian Backcountry Mascot, 'Barry' the Mountain Pygmy Possum Burramys parvus. All profits go to the possum recovery program at Mt Buller, so no discount codes on this kit, that'd defeat the purpose.
There will be all the usual trimmings, T-Shirts, give a ways, raffles and loads of fun. Some of the prize categories include worst DIY job, most inventive Splitboard design etc. etc. An official list will be out soon so stay tuned!
You have the option to stay in Jindabyne, camp in the National Park or my favorite camp on the peaks.
Jump on board and meet some new touring partners, the more the merrier!
