Welcome to the Melbourne Nordic Ski Club (MNSC) web site. We are based in Melbourne, the capital city of the state of Victoria in Australia. Our club is built around the activities of its members, who range from novice skiers to elite racers. Members participate in a broad range of ski activities including trail-skiing, snow-camping and back country skiing, telemarking, racing and ski orienteering. Some members are involved in ski patrols, the nordic rescue service and conserving our alpine parks and environments. In the summer months many of our members participate in other outdoor activities like mountain biking, bushwalking, canoeing and sailing.
If you're not yet a member, have a look at our website to find out more about our Club - who we are, why we're here and why you should join us. Whether you are an experienced skier looking for friends to ski and socialise with, a novice interested in learning to ski or somewhere in between, skiing with a club is fun, it offers a chance to learn new skills, meet new skiing friends and try new types of skiing (and it can save you a lot of money!)
We aim to run an on-snow event somewhere in Victoria most weekends in July and August. When snow permits we usually run trips for most of September as well. In 2017 we were still skiing at Mt Buller in October (after the lifts had closed for the season!)
Learn to Ski
The Club organises free group lessons on several weekend trips. Experienced members are always happy to pass on advice and tips about skiing and gear on an informal basis.
