About this Event

Arc’teryx Backcountry Weekend

After last year’s epic Weekend of Backcountry Arc’teryx is back for round two. Partnered with WAE, they’ll be running an epic and exclusive Australian Alps Backcountry Weekend.

25 lucky attendees will bag two full days of guided backcountry skiing and splitboarding with expert guides. Participants will practice how to safely navigate the backcountry while they explore.

Arc’teryx is looking for winter-loving frothers who are keen to take over Jerra Bomberra Lodge, get a sneak peak of some new and upcoming Arc’ gear, explore the Australian Alps and learn a thing or two while they’re out there.

Food, accommodation and activities are all sorted, just show up in Perisher with your gear and we’ve got the rest covered! Still not sold? Watch the film from last year!

This year we will offer a women’s only squad with a women guide. Places are limited in the group so if you’d like to join the all women subgroup, let us know. All other squads will be mixed.

So What’s The Weekend Involve?
