Essential Gear for Backcountry Adventures This Spring

With spring here and the snow resorts winding down their operations you may think that the 2017 alpine season is coming to an end. Not so! The Australian Backcountry has only just gotten started. Discover the snow beyond the ski lifts and experience a richer, more rewarding alpine experience.

Here we have compiled a list of the essential gear required for backcountry adventures be it snow shoeing, cross country skiing, ice climbing or alpine touring.

Alpine environments are prone to rapid & extreme changes in weather conditions, having the right equipment is critical for the safety of you and your group.

Use this list to check that you possess all the gear required for adventures into an alpine environment. For any gear that you are unsure of contact Mont Adventure Equipment, experts in alpine clothing & equipment.

It was a fast, easy walk down to Lake Adelaide, followed by a somewhat slower twist/turn down to a really attractive campsite at Lake Meston.
