Truly immerse yourself in the alpine experience and try snow camping. Camping spots are located throughout the resort.
Set off on your own or join a tour and leave all of the responsibilities to an experienced camp leader. A range of camping programs are available for beginners through to advanced skiers and snowboarders, requiring varying levels of aerobic fitness.
Several areas are well-suited to snow camping on Mt Stirling. Toilet facilities are located around the mountain for your convenience, however drinking water is not usually available. Where drinking water is available it should not be relied upon due to likelihood of freezing. Areas suited to camping within the resort include the Cricket Pitch, the Bluff Spur Hut area and the top of Dugout Bowl at the summit.
Mt Stirling is also home to the Alpine Winter Camp, a unique ski-in, ski-out accommodation option above the snowline. Operated by Stirling Experience, the camp features a central tepee for dining and socialising around the pot belly stove, and seven accommodation tents on raised, insulated platforms. You can even get meals delivered! Visit the Stirling Experience website for all the details and to book.
Mt Stirling Ski Patrol recommend camping amongst the Snowgums or around the summit area. If camping at lower elevations amongst the Alpine Ash, try to select an open area due to potential risk of falling limbs.
