CCCSC July Lodge Weekends

The club is hosting two July lodge weekends for members. These are held in conjunction with the ‘Come and Try’ cross country ski lessons at Perisher organised by Snowsports ACT.

These weekends are a great opportunity for all members, especially beginners or new members, to learn to ski or develop new skills, go on tours appropriate to their skiing level and meet other members, while staying in comfortable accommodation close to the mountains. Families with children are welcome. Both weekends include two nights’ accommodation in Kalkite. The cost for accommodation for a weekend is $70 (single) $140 (couple) $200 (family of 3-5 persons). Please note this fee does not include lessons, ski hire, transport or food costs.

Dates:                 7-9 July (school holidays) and 28–30 July

Perisher XC Trails – Work Party June 3-4

Your last chance this summer to be on the XC trails without skis on your feet – June 3-4.

This is the weekend that we really get ready for winter – cover the water courses with temporary pipes and tarps, finished repairing the pig damage, get rid of just one more rock, erect the winter safety fence behind the Shelter and transform the Shelter from a Works Depot into the welcoming place that we all know and love for the winter,

Please bring sturdy boots and clothing for all conditions, food/drink and bed linen/towels/etc if you are staying with us at CAC.
