Cross county skis and boots are recommended for Mount Buffalo as
there are no down hill ski lifts but there are groomed cross country ski
Cross country skis only attach to
the boot only at the toe allowing free movement to ski up hill. Most
have a "one way grip"pattern cut into the underside that allows the ski
to grip the snow when skiing up hill but also allows the skis to slide
freely when traveling back downhill.
It is recommended that you ensure that all ski equipment that you hire is in good condition and fits properly.
Poorly fitting boots and loose bindings may allow the boots to move on the ski.
This not only makes learning to ski and skiing difficult but could result in a serious ankle or knee injury.
There are a number of ski
hire shops in Myrtlelford, Bright and Porepunkah, there is also cross
country ski hire available in Wodonga
Note that not all ski hire shops stock Nordic / Cross Country Skis.
