Exploring the Koscuiszko back country is one of cross country skiing great joys; exploring the main range and surrounding hills and valleys, seek out the solitude that our National Park offers. Wilderness Sports can offer a variety of Tours to suit all Skiers.

The Roof of Australia

A journey to the top of Australia. One of the "Seven Summits" and a unique winter challenge.  Mt Kosciuszko (2228 metres) can be a challenging destination & is 6.5 km from the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chair or 9 km from Charlottes Pass and return.This is a FULL day and it is recommended that you do a 1/2 day tour to ensure you are prepared for travelling onto the Main Range where the weather & conditions can change rapidly!

On a "good" day it is a straight forward journey in summer but an 'expedition experience' most days through winter.  Summer Walking Trails can be buried under snow so navigation is critical....white outs very common.  Contact us for scheduled departures.
