The Victorian Backcountry Festival will be based at the Falls Creek Cross Country centre, located just above the top car park at Falls Creek Ski Resort in north east Victoria.
There is a fantastic program for the Backcountry Festival. Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Falls Creek Cross Country, there are some great telemark clinics and snow shoe tours, which are being offered for free.
A range of people have also offered to lead tours or offer skills workshops, like navigation skills and snow camping 101.
There will be demo skis available for hire, an outdoor bar in the afternoon, and a mini film festival featuring Australian made backcountry films in the evening.
Sunday will see the world telemark day gathering, with skiing both in and out of the resort as an option.
