RESORT SNOWSHOEING INFORMATION:
Snowshoeing is permitted on the entire trail network at Mt. Stirling. There are a total of 65 kilometres of marked trails within the resort approximately 35 kilometres of these are regularly groomed, including trails leading to the mountain summit and across to the Mt. Buller village. In addition, there are marked adventure trails leading into the surrounding State Park towards the Pinnacle and the Mount Number 3 Refuge Hut and also to Clear Hills and the famed Man From Snowy River film, Craig’s Hut.
Walking on the trail network without the use of skis or snowshoes is not permitted on Mt. Stirling, as this damages the trail surface, making skiing hazardous for other guests. When using snowshoes please keep to the left of the trails at all times leaving room for skiers to pass. For those visitors arriving on the mountain to go back country snow boarding in the Summit bowls it is mandatory use snowshoes or a split board on all trails.
If you plan to hire snowshoes, you will need a pair of sturdy waterproof walking boots or snow boots such as sorrels. Snowshoe bindings are simple to use and can be adjusted to any boot size. Low cut shoes or sneakers are not suitable, however, cross country ski boots available from the hire shop are ideal footwear for snowshoeing.
