Weather, snow, ice and avalanche conditions are constantly changing and we are only able to provide small, static snapshots of this dynamic phenomena. This service will help you familiarise yourself with the observed conditions across three regions of the Australian Alps.
Join the crew that keeps your stoke high and safety platform live. We need your support to provide the advisory service and to help protect (improve in some cases) our treasured terrain and freedom in the mountains. We are a booming bunch of like minded mountain enthusiasts, sign up today and pay it forward.
Community is a small group people inhabiting a place with a similar particular characteristic in common. Our place is the mountains, our characteristics are varied. Here are a few things going on in the mountains (and towns) this winter. There are festivals, races and safety training for every level of participant. Everyone welcome.
Over the course of the 2018 season we will be publishing a bunch of awesome guides to help you get the most out of the mountains. Compiled by local area experts, these will be available in printed and digital form. Routes, chutes and tour details.
We are crowdfunding ATCs. So you can double down on your avalanche multiple burial / recovery skills. It's a 'real time' treasure hunt. Because in a real avalanche, time is a killer. So here you can progress and hone your beacon smarts. Let's get real good at this, together.
This is a quick little interpretation page for those who are new to the reporting standards of this site. An important read for first timers.
