Lunch in the snow

The Club aims to run an event on various mountains in Victoria, on each weekend in July and August. When there is enough snow, trips are often held in June and September.

About the Club

Melbourne Nordic Ski Club Inc. is a friendly club and welcomes new members. Established in 1978, the Club has grown from a nordic racing club into a club with a broad focus encompassing the whole spectrum of cross country skiing. The Club is built around the activities of its members, who range from novice skiers to elite racers.

We participate in a range of cross-country ski activities including trail-skiing, snow-camping and back country skiing, racing and ski orienteering.

Whatever the activity, we promote minimal impact skiing, and care for our alpine environments. And we take snow safety seriously.

We are a non-profit organisation with members of all ages and from all parts of the Melbourne metropolitan area. We are not a commercial enterprise.

The Club tries to keep costs reasonable. Accommodation ranges from tents, huts, holiday units to lodges.

Our monthly meetings held during the winter months, usually feature a speaker on skiing or a related topic. They're also a great opportunity to meet people, and get tips and advice on trips and equipment.

Socialising is an important part of Club life.
