Year 11 students from the Outdoor and Environmental Studies class had a three day trip up to the Victorian Alps. They travelled up Mount Stirling to collect their Cross-Country skis, a journey that took four hours to complete. Once they made it up the mountain, they set up camp for a night in the snow. After a very cold night, students were greeted with breathtaking views of the Alps around them.
Students then packed up camp and made their way back down the mountain before arriving back at Telephone Junction Box. A mini-bus took the students back up to Mount Buller and upon arrival, noticed a very different environment compared to that of Mount Stirling. The students enjoyed a night in a warm bed with a heated room before taking on Mount Buller’s slopes on downhill skis the next day. This wintery expedition was an opportunity for the students, many of whom had never been cross-country skiing, to challenge themselves and conquer some very challenging terrain.
