The Mont Backcountry Info Night is at Capacity. Thank you to everyone who has confirmed their RSVP.
Totally free and guaranteed to inspire, educate and open your eyes to ski and splitboard mountaineering in the Australian Backcountry.
The Mont Backcountry Info Night is about true backcountry, beyond the bounds of the sidecountry and slackcountry. It will give you a taste of the knowledge and the best contacts to tackle the epic Western faces of the Main Range, Watson's Crags, Carruthers, camping in the snow and at altitude and much more.
Learn from guide and fixture of the Australian backcountry Doug Chatten of Snowy Mountains Backcountry, alpine clothing systems expert and gold medallist skier Michael Milton, lifelong ski-tourer and Mont Shop manager Leann Geach, and Dynafit specialist Simon 'Tech' Head.
You will learn about mountain safety, best gear setups, clothing systems, alpine camping equipment, backcountry ski and splitboard hardware and much more.
We will be taking donations for WIRES wildlife rescue, who are always busy in winter.
Of course, we will have COVID precautions in place that include spaced seating, sanitation stations and mandatory check-in at the door.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Mont Shop Fyshwick.
Comments will be approved before showing up.

"I've always looked after my shellwear, I've never washed it, but it isn't keeping me dry. What is going on?"
It's never been washed. That's what's going on. For shellwear to keep out rain, expel perspiration and last for as long as possible, it needs to be kept relatively clean. There is a lot of misinformation out there that the way to look after it is by never washing it.
