Back country reports have ceased for the 2017 season.

Wilderness Sports is open all year round, 7 days a week, and continue to hire equipment until the snow is gone!

The back country still has plenty of snow to play in! If you're still new to the back country don't hesitate to call the Jindy store for recommendations and up-date-conditions in the back country.

We have a full range of snowshoes, alpine touring, cable telemark, and NBC skis available to hire - so come on in!
We are still offering demo's and packages of new equipment.

PLB's are available for hire here in store and available to try before you buy.

Whilst the road is open to Charlottes, the Kosciuszko Express lift out of Thredbo is still open for access to the back country out of Thredbo - cost is:
