Winter Longhike is coming up!

This is an introductory trip for winter camping. We'll be a large group of keen people that want to experience a totally new face of the white backcountry.

We'll be having great fun and learning new skills such as building our very own snow shelter (or if you're ambitious enough, a snow castle). There will be a prize for the most elaborate snow-cave :D

Other activities likely to happen include (but are not limited to):

  • Backcountry food cook-off
  • Sing-alongs
  • Great skiing on Sunday


This is a beginner friendly trip and if you've never seen snow you're more than welcome to join! This is trip is also, ski-, snowboard-, and snowshoe-friendly.
