Skitouring - Iglute
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.
