Introduction to Backcountry skiing 3rd July 2012

Filed under: Backcountry Report,Shop News,Uncategorized — MAC Team @ 1:16 am

Many still think of this as early season but the great conditions tell otherwise.  Amazing cover for this time of the year providing a great ½ day ski tour.  The great snow cover means easy access to the back country and fantastic skiing.

Today’s small group were lead on an introductory ski tour covering basic skills needed to negotiate off trail skiing in the Australian High Country.  We headed out in the direction of Porcupine rocks from Perisher Ski Resort.  The group loved getting away from the crowds and were amazed by the natural, untouched environment of the mountains in winter.

Hilleberg Atlas – free standing group tent

Filed under: Latest news,Shop News,Ski touring,Uncategorized — MAC Team @ 4:21 am

Blue Mountains TAFE are testing out our new Hilleberg Atlas tent as their base camp class room. We took a peek inside this morning and were pleased to see it lives up to the reviews “Tremendously spacious, very stable & completely modular, the Atlas is the big-group tent for any situation.”

We have 3 of these tents and connecting vestibules which we will pitch and post video/photos of soon. In the mean time visit the Hilleberg website for more information.

Cross Country Skiing Conditions

Filed under: Uncategorized — MAC Team @ 10:00 am

Almost end of July and the snow cover is excellent.  With early July snowfalls and wind to fill in the lee slopes we have been experiencing excellent conditions.  This last week produced cold clear nights and still clam days.  All the xc ski tracks are groomed and trackset.  Along with the new nordic shelter extension you are just missing out if you are not xc skiing at the moment.  More snow forecast too!nordic shelter5km loop
