Safety alerts: High altitude walks - difficult snowdrift crossings

There are still large snow drifts on the high sections of the high altitude walks (above about 2000m in altitude) in Kosciuszko National Park.  With the existing snow and with alpine weather please note the following information when visiting these areas:

 

General:

Be prepared:

  • Low visibility, extreme winds, severe storms and snowfalls can all occur without warning.
  • Wear and carry appropriate clothing, carry navigation equipment and be prepared for extreme conditions.
  • Track surfaces and signs may not be visible.

Travel with care:

  • Choose your routes carefully
  • Steep and icy terrain can make travel very dangerous.
  • Deep soft spring snow can collapse underneath you - mind your steps.

 

Areas above 2000m, including higher parts of Kosciuszko walk, Main Range walk, Summit walk, Mt Stillwell walk and Hanells Spur walk

Expect short/ steep stretches of snow/ ice cover:

  • Ensure footwear is waterproof, solid and with good grip.
  • Take a map and compass and know how to use them. Sections of tracks will not be obvious and most don't have above snow markers.
  • Take extreme caution when on all steep slopes due to slippery surfaces.

The program will be continuous and ongoing between 9 August 2022 until 8 February 2023. These programs are part of an integrated pest animal control strategy, aimed at minimising the impacts of these animals on neighbouring stock.

Baiting programs will also be undertaken in Paupong, Merriangaah and Quidong Nature Reserves.
