Visiting in Summer
A great summer destination for a Group holiday, to have a planning weekend, to come hang out and help with one of our working bees, or just relax and watch the world go by.
During Winter the Bogong Rover Chalet runs a series of Ski Weeks (with the occasional half week). This is due to the remote location of the Chalet.
Full weeks run from Saturday to Saturday (although exacts dates and times may need to vary because of weather and safety requirements).
The full list of dates is available here.
The Bogong Rover Chalet is available to members of the Scout Association and the general public.
During the season some Ski Weeks are restricted to different age groups.
Ski Venture weeks are open to Venturer aged participants, 15 - 18, with leaders also attending for safety - not to do all of the work (or really any… :-p ). Naturally, these are alcohol free weeks.
Our Ski Moot weeks are targeted at Rover aged participants, 18 - 26, with great deals and a great party atmosphere for Rovers.
All our other weeks are open to everyone 18+.
The normal run down of a week is as follows:
Everyone is expected to make their own way to Tawonga - although we make a special point to help our Venturer aged participants.
We communicate as a group of participants before our Ski Week commences and to organise things like carpooling.
A few weeks before the Ski Week we have a Briefing Night with our Ski Party (all the participants).
Here we talk about how everything works, what to expect, and answer any of your questions.
It’s a great way to meet everyone else in your Ski Party, and we also decide on a theme for our week (just a bit of fun).
