VCC Mountaineering 2 – Introductory Snow Trip Mk II: TRIP FULL

Victorian High Country 30 Jul 2016 — 31 Jul 2016

This trip is now FULL. Contact the Trip Leader if you’d like to be placed on the waiting list.

There’s a whole magical world out there: mountain life! We want to give you an idea of what mountaineering is about, where its beauty lies and why it is so addictive. Like climbing on rocks, mountaineering is an activity requiring a mix of skills. In the past many successful rock-climbers like Brigitte Koch, Alex Honnold and our own Andrew Lock transitioned into the challenging world of snow and glacier-covered mountains.

It’s time to go out there and learn some skills. During this trip we will cover things like movement on snow, navigation, snow camping  and of course emergency management. Based in a safe environment we get prepared to venture out into more challenging terrain on the next trip. Snow and weather conditions will dictate the location of the trip.
