Climb8 will be a long distance snowshoe expedition which is being planned for the winter of 2020.

It aims to travel from Namadgi in the ACT to Walhalla in Victoria via the Australian Alps Walking Track. It will cross 36 summits, visit 8 ski resorts and carry out climate change research along the way. It will start on June 6.

Organiser Terra Roam has announced that there are now opportunities to be involved in the expedition.

How to get involved

The expedition is divided into 15 one day and multi-day sections which can be joined by any experienced backcountry snowshoer and alpine hiker.

There are also a few halfday opportunities suitable for first time snowshoeing. 

Check the Climb8 website for more details. Each section is mapped on the website, to give you a sense of what to expect.
