Perisher X- Country supports clubs and associations that support XC skiing in the Snowy Mountains. Three non-lodge based organisations provide training and activities in the Perisher area and beyond:
NSWACT XC is the local XC discipline committee of Snow Australia (the national sport body for snowsports). The Committee is based in Perisher and runs comprehensive, year-round XC training programs for young XC skiers who are keen to improve their skills and participate in activities and competition. NSWACT XC is part of the Snow Australia pathways from local participation through international competition. Information about NSWACT XC traiing activities can be found at NSWACT XC Team App
NSWACT XC also organises events and activities at the Perisher XC Centre for skiers of all levels and abilities throughout winter. See calendars and event information under EVENTS in this website.
The NORDIC SHELTER is managed and maintained by the volunteers of NSWACT XC for the use of all XC skiers. Information about the Nordic Shelter can be found in other areas of this website.
Snowy Mountains Nordic (SMN) is a subsidiary of NSWACT XC. They are a locally based (Jindabyne) cross country ski group that welcomes Snowy Mountains' residents of all ages, skill levels and abilities. Their aim is to encourage a fun and social environment for both families and individuals, including a development program for local juniors wishing to improve their cross country skiing..

Canberra Cross Country Ski
Experience the adventure of skiing in the backcountry, exploring beyond the ski resorts, breaking new tracks through
Activities include cross country touring, telemark skiing, alpine touring and track skiing. Members interests are diverse. Some like leisurely day trips 'bushwalking on snow' while others look for steep slopes to carve turns on untracked snow. Some will base themselves in a lodge; others may camp out on snow overnight or do extended back country treks.
