HALF DAY - FULL DAY

HALF DAY
RAMSHEAD RAMBLE
Begin your journey on the Kosciuszko Chair and snowshoe towards the Kosciuszko Lookout. Enjoy the views of Mt Kosciuszko and the main range covered in snow. Snow shoe up an exciting gully to the Ramshead Plateau and be amazed by rock tors covered in snow and ice. Return to Thredbo .

PORCUPINE ROCKS WINTER PICNIC
Meet us at the Perisher Nordic Shelter (behind the Man from the Snowy River Hotel) a short walk from the Ski Tube. Relax with a cup of hot chocolate before starting out on your winter picnic trip to the Porcupine Rocks. Follow the well-marked Rock Creek Snowshoe Track before cutting loose and beyond the bounds of the Perisher resort area. Find yourself on top of the Crackenback Range with expansive views along the Thredbo Valley towards Jindabyne as you enjoy your picnic lunch. Return via the Rock Creek Valley or Summit Road under snow to Perisher.

FULL DAY
MT KOSCIUSZKO MAJESTIC TOUR
A must for winter enthusiasts! There is nothing more beautiful than standing on top of Australia in mid-winter, the sun shining, the mountains covered in snow, the snow-capped Victorian high country on the horizon and Mt Jagungal prominent to the north. Kosciuszko National Park is as compelling in the winter months as it is during the summer wildflower season and you can make your Kosciuszko Summit debut or return trip on snowshoes in winter. For Seven Summiteers Mt Kosciuszko in winter is just wonderful and will deliver a different sort of high as you experience climbing some of the big peaks on the earth. The Kosciuszko weather can be truly challenging with blizzard conditions, ferocious winds and zero visibility. The winter landscape is also unremarkable if you are not acquainted with the usual peak and handrails that can disappear behind low lying clouds. Go with a guide!

THREDBO TO CHARLOTTE PASS RETURN WITH SMORGASBORD LUNCH
Just for fun you might like to join us on a the Thredbo to Charlotte Pass return trip on snow shoes. It is a BIG DAY OUT with a substantial smorgasbord lunch at Kosciuszko Chalet thrown in to bolster the spirits and energy for the return journey via Mt Stillwell and Kangaroo Range. Just spectacular fun.

RAMSHEAD PEAKS
A full day visiting the major Ramshead Peaks starting from Eagles’ Nest at Thredbo. Board the Kosciuszko Express to begin your journey then walk to the North Ramshead for amazing view towards Mt Kosciuszko and Victoria then visit the major peaks, the Ramshead, Middle and South Ramshead before descending to Dead Horse Gap. A photographers’ delight.

MT KOSCIUSZKO - RAMSHEAD - SOUTH RAMSHEAD
To make a really big day of it - complete a winter ascent of Mt Kosciuszko on snow shoes then traverse the Kosciuszko Cornice along the South Ridge and descend to Cootapatamba Hut.
