Winter Essentials

The alpine environment is perfect for adventurous and exciting winter activities, including bushwalking. Here are three websites designed to help you to stay informed, prepared and safe.

  • Snowfalls have been recorded at quite low altitudes this season. Public huts can provide much-needed shelter, so it’s timely to check out the Victorian High Country Huts Association Hut Code.
  • The Mountain Safety Collective provides daily observations and forecasts of likely alpine hazards in Victoria and New South Wales, right through the snow season. Check their Backcountry Conditions Reports on their website.
  • The revamped SnowSafe website provides essential information on how to enjoy the alpine environment in safety and comfort; planning and preparation are highlighted.
