Alpine Camp School Group Bookings

Sheltered LocationMt. Stirling’s only SKI-IN SKI-OUT ACCOMMODATION above the snow line which can be booked in advance. The Mt. Stirling Alpine Winter Camp is located at an altitude of 1500mts, in the permanent winter snow zone, 3.5klm from Telephone Box Junction. The camp is located within the snowgum forest, in a sheltered clearing known as the Cricket Pitch.

The snow gums provide a unique Australian Alpine scene and safe protective shelter The reliable snowfall remains for the entire season and the best skiing is to be had.

Up until now, leading a group, especially one comprising beginner or at best intermediate level skiers, with full overnight packs and all camping equipment to this unique but very safe winter camping location has presented a certain degree risk.

However now you can lighten the load. Clothing, sleeping bag and food is all that is required. Everything else is provided in the Alpine Camp. If you prefer we can even cater for you from our CAMP MENU, delivered to you fresh on the day you arrive. Simply order at least 4 days in advance.

Your group will arrive to a fully set up camp, dry shelter and a warm fire. If there is skiing anywhere on the mountain, it will be at your front door. PLUS trails around the Cricket Pitch have a gentle grade and a day trip to the summit is only a few kilometres. Even a ski tour to Craig’s Hut and return is achievable for those with an intermediate or above ability level. However please plan your trip and fill in the Ski Patrol Intentions Form at TBJ on arrival. Talk to a Ski School or Ski Patrol member if in doubt.  We have an excellent Resort safety record and would like to ensure your safety as best we can. Daily Ski School Instruction and Mountain Tour Guiding can be arranged through our Ski School using the Camp as your base.

The Alpine Camp comprises a large central Tepee with a warming potbelly stove for social activities and dining, surrounded by 7 accommodation tents. All tents are on raised platforms with insulated flooring. Accommodation tents are tall enough to stand up in and have a vestibule for equipment storage, together with stretchers, insulated underlay and warm fiber pile blankets for 4 persons in the main living compartment. A 4-burner gas cook top, washing up facilities and water is provided in the guest shelter and composting toilets are adjacent to the Camp. The camp accommodates up to 28 persons.
