Mountain Safety Collective has just launched its annual membership drive, so sign up before June 12 and you could get your hands on gear from Arc’teryx, Mammut, Thredbo Resort, Marker, Volkl, Burton, or Black Crows!

What is Mountain Safety Collective?

Mountain Safety Collective is a non-for-profit organisation that supports Explorers getting out in the NSW and VIC winter backcountry. 

During the snow season, the team provides daily Backcountry Conditions Reports of an international standard. These include regular observations and analysis of the snowpack as well as weather and potential hazard forecasts.

What does a membership include?

An annual membership with MSC is $50 per person which helps fund the team to get out on-snow and bring you the most accurate reports each day.

It also supports facilities like a new Avalanche Training Centre in NSW to complement the one they built in Victoria last year and any remaining funds help sponsor professional development, events and environmental initiatives.

Members also get discounts on MSC merchandise, as well as discounts from MSC sponsors, including Arc’teryx.


What’s the go with the membership drive? 

As the snow season approaches each year, MSC runs a membership drive with plenty of prizes and gear up for grabs.

Here’s what you could get your little snow mitts on; 


Week 1: May 2-8

The first week of the drive is sponsored by Arc’teryx and every person who signs up to be a member will get a branded beanie or cap! 


Week 2: May 9-15

Mammut is the week 2 sponsor and the first 10 people to sign up in this week will get a Mammut cap of neck gaiter. 


Week 3: May 16-22

This week the first 10 people to sign up get a cap from Thredbo Ski Resort. 


Week 4: May 23-29 

Be one of the first 10 people to sign up during week 4 and you’ll get your hands on a cap or T-shirt from Marker-Volkl. 


Week 5: May 30-June 5

Burton is this week’s sponsor and the first 10 people to sign up will grab a Burton cap or beanie. 


Week 6: June 6-12 

This is your last chance to sign up to MSC before the grand prize is drawn, and trust me, you want to have your name in the ring for this one.
