This September, outdoor brand Arc’teryx is taking over the Southern Alps Lodge in Charlotte Pass to bring a first of its kind experience to the Australian wilderness. The group adventure, exclusive to only 25 people, will include an introduction to avalanche safety gear and how to use it, Avalanche Canada specialists in a safe environment and two days of guided ski and snowboard touring in one of Australia’s most stunning locations.

Backcountry, also called off-piste, involves riding snow in an off-route area with no lifts in the wilderness, to earn your turns. The weekend will be catered to intermediate to advanced levels to ensure there is minimum risk and maximum experience. All instructors are provided from backcountry specialists Alpine Access.

This trip is open to both skiers and splitboarders!

So What’s The Weekend Involve?
