Jagungal Journey 2024

The Jagungal Journey is a fast & light multi day ski tour into the remote areas of the Kosciuszko National Park. Tour with SMBC for a unique experience from Guthega to Mt Jagungal. This beautiful peak is Kosciouszko National Park's most northern peak over 2000m & our most remote alpine peak.



The journey is over 4 days beginning at SMBC HQ at Guthega Mountain Centre, across The Rolling Ground, The Kerries & into the remote Jagungal region. As much as a spiritual experience to the beautiful Jagungal Wilderness this multi-day tour is a lesson in efficient ski touring & simplistic systems including equipment choices, sleeping systems, food choices & cooking.

The Jagungal Journey is a classic ski tour about covering distance to a remote beautiful location 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 over 60km with 20km days which requires a high 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. Frame & hybrid bindings are not suitable for this tour!


Simplistic systems will help to lighten the load. SMBC will be supply backpack, lightweight shelter, sleeping bag & sleeping mat. The guide will do all of the cooking & carry the stove & participants will carry their food.
