Skiing
Difficulty:

Start date: 
Saturday, 9 September 2017 - 5:00am to Sunday, 10 September 2017 - 8:00pm

A last minute AT trip to Leatherbarrel Creek to make the most out of recent snowfall!The plan is to leave Canberra on Saturday at 5, start walking up to Leatherbarrel Creek from Deadhorse Gap at around 9:30-10am. The walk in should take 1.5-2hrs depending on the weather. We'll set up camp then ski for the rest of the afternoon,staying the night at LBC. On Sunday we'll ski in the morning then pack up camp before walking out, hopefully we will be at the cars by about 4 (or earlier) and back in Canberra at around 7:30-8.

To join this trip you'll need to be relatively fit as we are probably covering over 1000m vertical each day and will be carrying overnight packs for walk in. You need to be able to ski intermediate blue runs and have some familiarity with skiing off piste.You should be familiar with using AT or other backcountry gear. The club's AT gear is booked out so you'll either need you're own AT gear or be comfortable on Telemakr equipment. You also need to be responsible for yourself in terms of camping and food. Make sure you bring enough warm things for snow camping!
