The Jagungal Journey is a classic ski tour more so than a backcountry ski tour. Whilst there are some descents to be had including skiing off Mt Jagungal much of the journey is through the beautiful undulating terrain in the alpine & snowgums. The vista of the Main Range from the summit of Mt Jagungal reveals the remoteness of this magical location.
This is a challenging tour which requires a higher level of fitness, backcountry skiing experience & advanced skiing skills. Lightweight equipment is essential i.e. pin tech bindings & a scale Alpine Touring Ski more suited to the undulating terrain. Climbing skins will also be used for the steeper climbs, difficult surface conditions & to maintain efficiency.
As much as a spiritual experience to the beautiful Jagungal Wilderness this multi-day tour is a lesson in efficient ski touring & simplistic systems.
