At the UNSW Outdoors Backcountry meeting, I promised I would put together a list of good online resources in preparation for this years oncoming Ski/Board season. Here it is!
The Australian Backcountry
A great starting point to see what is out there in the australian Backcountry and for some gear and safety discussion. This should be your first stop to have a good look at some of the terrain and plan trips.
Australia’s largest skiing forum. Lots of stuff one here, the weather section in particular is great.
Blog of the late, great Steve Romeo. There is a HEAP of cool alpine toruing and general backcountry advice on this page. In particular, he has some great gear list videos on his youtube page listed below.
Gear reviews and lots of articles.
If you are a complete splitboarding noob, start here; http://www.splitboard.com/index.php/splitboard101.
Second Hand Gear
Neither of these are actually skiing forums, but AT gear shows up from time to time on them! They are alos both great places to oick up second hand Gore Tex clothing and similar.
