Truly immerse yourself in the alpine experience and spend a night under canvas this winter. Camping spots are located throughout the resort.
Mt Stirling is the perfect place to flex your alpine adventure muscles and test your hiking and camping gear. If you'd like some support or something more social you can join a tour and let an experienced camp leader show you the ropes. A range of guided alpine adventure programs are available for beginners through to advanced skiers and snowboarders, requiring varying levels of aerobic fitness.
Several areas are well-suited for snow camping on Mt Stirling with sheltered and scenic glades ideal for pitching your tent for a night. 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 home to the Alpine Winter Camp, a unique ski-in, ski-out accommodation offering nestled high in the snowline. Operated by Stirling Experience, the camp features a central teepee for dining and socialising around the pot belly stove, with seven accommodation tents on raised, insulated platforms. You can even get meals delivered! Visit the Alpine Winter Camp page for more info.
Mt Stirling Ski Patrol recommend camping amongst the snowgums or around the summit area. If camping at lower elevations amongst the Alpine Ash, select an open area to reduce risk of branch fall.
