A celebration of ‘all things back country’, from cross-country skiing and alpine touring, to split boarding and snow camping, and everything in between. 



Victoria’s Back Country Festival is back for 2021! Who’s keen to celebrate the growing movement of ‘all things back country’? 

You’ll learn about human-powered winter activities such as cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, telemarking, alpine touring, split boarding, photography and snow camping.  

The Festival aims to not only provide an introduction to the ever-growing suite of backcountry activities, but to also make it more accessible to the general public whilst educating them about mountain safety. 

The 2021 Festival program will have a range of workshops catering for non-skiers to beginners, all the way to advanced skiers and boarders. We will have an inspiring speaker’s program, a demo village, and a repeat of the ski-in outdoor bar that was a favourite in 2019. This is an event you won’t want to miss! 

Currently scheduled for 3-5 September, 2021. Stay tuned for more details.
