Zac is a Level 4 APSI qualified cross-country ski-instructor, the K7
Adventures Kosciuszko Ski School Director since the Ski School’s inception in 2009 and former President of the Australian
Biathlon Association. He first strapped on a pair of cross country skis in 1976 and somehow managed to gasp his way around
the NSW 30 km Championships, finishing a distant last. Undeterred he came back for more, eventually qualifying as a
cross-country ski instructor in 1989. Zac was active as an instructor, coach and backcountry guide for the Defence Force
for many years, exploring every corner of the National Park in the process. For his significant contribution to the Army
cross-country ski and biathlon team he was made a life member of the Defence Force Cross Country Ski Association.
During the northern winter Zac competes at the World Masters Cross Country Ski championships as well as
pursuing his quest to become a Worldloppet master by competing all major ski marathons around the globe. Zac is also one of
Australia’s top high altitude mountaineers having been on 19 expeditions to the Himalaya (including three to Mt Everest) and
12 to New Zealand. His ascents include six summits above the magic 8000 metres in altitude. During the winter Zac runs
regular ski mountaineering and ice-climbing programs at Blue Lake.
Zac is also A Level 1 Telemark Instructor and loves to strap on a pair of alpine skis for a rest after
a long day’s training session on cross country skis.
