A Message from Doug Chatten

While the weather report is no longer current, the motivation for a gear shakedown and excitement for what will be a great season is nothing but infectious and too good not to share.

Doug Chatten, backcountry guide with Snowy Mountains Backcountry, has been skiing the Main Range for over 30 years, representing Mont as an Ambassador and using Mont gear for 25 years, and working in the NSW Snowy Mountains professionally for 20 years.

When it comes to backcountry skiing on the Main Range, there isn't anyone we trust more than Doug: His knowledge, experience and abilities are second to none.

Last year we set a target of 100,000 trees. Thanks to Mont customers all over Australia, New Zealand and the World, just over 150,000 trees were planted! Partnering with Eden Reforestation Projects, funds were effectively and efficiently directed to areas of poverty and deforestation creating jobs and revitalising forests that once existed.

Australian longicorn borers are known worldwide for their ability to aggressively infest eucalypt plantations. In Australia, too, longicorn outbreaks have struck plantations in Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland. By contrast, outbreaks of longicorns are rare in native eucalypt forests. Why? Well, it’s not clear, but the current theory is that to be successful, longicorn populations must develop in forests that are persistently drought-stressed. In plantations, a single species is often planted over a varying landscape that is, in some cases, too dry. Native eucalypt forests, however, generally comprise numerous species leading to a patterned landscape of species that is more resilient to stress.

Over the last couple of days I have had a couple of short forays into Mount Field National Park. This magnificent park has landscapes that range from temperate rainforest with beautiful waterfalls to extensive alpine areas with some stunning mountain topography. Mount Field National Park, along with Freycinet National Park, were both declared national parks in 1916, making them the oldest national parks in Tasmania.
