Snow Venture

Snow Venture, is held each year for Venturers at the Bogong Rover Chalet, and is an awesome opportunity to learn how or to improve your skiing. (You'll soon learn if you haven’t skied before).

Snow Venture is unbeatably the best value for money you can get for eight days skiing, however also gives you a wonderful experience to appreciate some of Australia’s awesome high country in the snow, while cross country skiing with other Venturers. The final leg of the trip is accomplished on cross-country skis for 11km. Yes, you need to and must be physically able to ski the full 11km into the chalet carrying all your gear and share of food.

There is a different theme each year for the trip and Venturers organise evening activities for everyone to participate in after the days skiing adventures, which are great fun.

Snow Venture is organised and led by an experienced team of Leaders that have attended many ski weeks at the chalet and have also completed training for the running of the chalet to make Snow Venture not only a wonderful experience for all, but also to ensure the SAFETY of everyone in the snow.



Iglute is a weekend-long introduction to snow camping and on-snow travel with pack on skis or snow-shoes.

We normally do some Igloo or snow-cave building on Saturday and do some skiing around the local area trails. Igloo-builders confident of their construction skills are encouraged to sleep overnight in their ice creations.

Experience this cooler, whiter way of camping and travelling around our mountain country under the expert supervision of the Victorian Branch Ski Touring Team activity leaders.
