General Information:

Cross Country Ski or Snow Shoe this event although we don't plan these to be different categories.  The 31st July is the first planned date for this event. The 14th and 28th August are backup days in case of unfavourable conditions such as poor snow coverage or bad weather delays.

The event will be based at the Mt St Gwinear resort. Mt St Gwinear is a popular cross Country skiing location. Apart from VRA entry fees for the event, there is no entry fees to access the course area.

Set during the winter of 2019 and set higher up the mountain where there is more reliable snow. The course covers from near St Gwinear ski trails through to edges of the Mt Baw Baw ski resort area. Some checkpoints are in open areas, others among the snowgums.


No Camping on the Mountain.  Accommodation at Moe or the small towns of Erica, Rawson or Walhalla. 

TBA, but uses 5m contours
