August in the Old Snowy Mountains of Australia
« on: 08/25/15, 04:58 PM »

Adjusting to the summer was a bit too hard so I decided to take a trip down south and put on a snow camping clinic in the Old Snowy Mountains and attend the OZ Splitboard festival in-route to New Zealand for the next 3 months.

We were able to camp on top of Little Twynam which is the 3rd tallest peak in Australia and head out to the famous Western Slopes focusing on Razorback Ridge into the Watson drainage before weather came up and forced us back to camp. Though there may not be a lot of options for steeps they are there and it is a corn skiers heaven.









Splitfest had the biggest attendance in the 5 years since starting and I was able to put on a slideshow focusing on a few of my favorite trips in the Cascades around Rainier and Glacier peak.



 All in all it was a great trip and great fun.
