Mountain Sports Collective is a membership based not-for-profit user group organisation for human powered alpine sports in Australia.
In winter it produces a regular ‘Backcountry Conditions Report’ covering three areas: North East VIC, the Central Alpine Ranges in VIC, and the Main Range in the Snowy Mountains. The reports cover alpine snow and weather conditions and travel and terrain advice. It is generally updated as conditions change significantly.
This winter MSC has set up a ‘community observation’ page that allows backcountry users to contribute information about conditions. You can add your observations here.
Now that proper winter conditions have finally kicked in, the Reports will be updated on a regular basis.
Please check the reports before heading into the backcountry.
