Climb8 will be a long distance snowshoe expedition planned for the 2020 winter.
It aims to cross 36 summits, visit 8 ski resorts and carry out climate change research along the way.
Organiser Terra Roam says:
“At 700 kms it is longer than I had anticipated but with good team dynamics it will not feel so big.
“Climb8 will start at the ruins of Mt Franklin ski chalet in Namadgi National Park on the ACT border and finish at Mt Baw Baw in Victoria, Australia’s most southern mainland ski resort.
“On the way we will attempt to summit 26 peaks and knolls above 2,000m in Kosciuszko National Park, Victoria’s 10 highest alpine peaks and visit the top 8 ski resorts.
“It’s evolving and since I first revisited this idea in February it has changed from a simple solo winter traverse into something far more exciting and aims to have a positive impact on community and the environment.
Would you like to be part of Climb8? I will be looking for team members to train with this winter on the Kosciuszko main range. Please contact me”.
