Ski / Ride Hard. Do Good. Mountain Journal

The backcountry festival is the product of a lot of volunteer effort and good will. Falls Creek Resort Management Board, Falls Creek Cross Country, and a range of businesses and individuals have offered help and support in various forms. Bogong Equipment has provided some funds.

We hope to be able to give back to some worthy causes while we hold the festival.

First, we want to have a low impact event. If you have a reusable cup, please bring it for use in the caf at Windy Corner. Think about catching the bus or car pooling.

Our mascot (totem animal?) for the festival is the Mountain Pygmypossum, Burramys parvus, Australias only hibernating marsupial. The mountain pygmy possum has been declared by the IUCN Redlist as Critically endangered. In 2000, the population estimates totalled less than 2,000 individuals from the three combined isolated populations that exist across the Australian Alps.

Funds received through the film night will be shared between Mountain Critter Cause and the Friends of the Earth climate campaign.

Mountain Critter Cause supports a breeding program for the possum that is run by the University of NSW. Climate change is one of the greatest threats to the possum.

Check for details on our fund raising efforts for the possum.

Thanks to the generosity of Peter Hull from local brewery Sweetwater, we will also be raising funds for Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA) through the outdoor bar we will be running on Saturday afternoon. The organisation has assisted thousands of individuals with disabilities to participate in winter sports annually and has a strong presence at Falls Creek. You can find details here.

The inaugural Australian backcountry film festival Mountain Journal

Its time for our own festival! This set of short films comes from a number of different producers and features some lovely stories and stunning scenes from some of our grandest skiing and riding terrain.

The evening will be introduced by film maker Stephen Curtain, who made the great Australian telemark film Winter Dreaming. Aside from revealing a few of the behind the scenes and back stories to the film, Stephen explores the connection of the Australian Alps to Antarctica where he has worked as a polar videographer. Supporting alpine and polar science and research, Stephen discusses the role we can all play to protect our winters.

Matt OKeeffe, head of Falls Creek ski patrol, will talk about backcountry safety.

Island Pro set to return South Gippsland Sentinel-Times

AFTER a successful 2017 event, the Phillip Island Pro will be returning to the Bass Coast in 2018 for its second running and will bring more than 120 professional surfers to the wave-rich region.
The QS1000 ranked World Surf League event saw 120 competitors compete last year in incredible conditions that showcased the variety of surf on Phillip Island.
The event will be held from November 2 to 6 at the primary location of Cape Woolamai with the option of moving to other areas of Phillip Island if necessary.
The event will include an Indigenous Invitational along with a Junior Challenge that will run throughout the waiting period.
The inaugural Phillip Island Pro was a massive success, Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson said.
To have more than 120 competitors involved with 80 per cent of them coming from interstate was a massive boost to the local economy.
We had an incredible day of waves at Cape Woolamai followed up by two days of great waves at the Penguin Parade. It really showcased how diverse and consistent the surf is in the area.
We are stoked to have the support of the Bass Coast Shire Council, Phillip Island Nature Parks and Westernport Water to make sure this event happens every year.
The event will continue its commitment to gender equality with equal prize money pool for both Men and Women, $10,000 for each division.
Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, explained that this commitment to equal prize money is integral to the councils commitment towards gender equality in sport.
I am immensely proud that this event is returning to our beautiful Island where we will showcase not only our fantastic surfing beaches, but importantly our pledge towards gender equality in sport, Cr Rothfield said.
There is no better way to set the standard and provide a positive and encouraging pathway for our young female surfers, than by providing equal opportunities and encouraging equal participation.
I sincerely hope that more tournaments will follow our lead to even the playing field.
The Phillip Island Pro will be held from November 2 to 6.

Stars winners over Warragul South Gippsland Sentinel-Times

INVERLOCHS Senior Womens team faced off against Warragul at Warragul in unfavourable conditions after considerable rain.
The ground extremely muddy and even more rain fell throughout most of the game.
Despite this Inverloch had a strong start and kept the ball in their attacking half early on. The first goal came after a free kick awarded to Inverloch and was taken by Emily Smith. Smith kicked the ball straight to the keeper who fumbled but luckily Smith had followed her kick in and was there to send it straight into goal.
Warragul made several attempts to run for goal but Inverlochs solid defence line soon shut them down. Inverloch continued to dominate the game and a second goal came from Smith who sent the ball flying over the Warragul keepers head and into goal.
At half time Inverloch lead 2-0. Inverloch came out firing again with several early attempts at goal. A free kick was awarded to Inverloch after a handball and this resulted in another goal to Inverloch. Inverloch lead 3-0. Warragul continued to fight back but Inverloch were very strong in defence and Fiona Richardson in the midfield was never far from the action putting in a stellar performance. Smith and Kat Olive made a great run for goal and Smith put in Inverlochs fourth goal for the match, to lead 4-0. Warragul made a run and put their first score on the board late in the second half. Inverloch prevailed 4-1.

Senior Mens
The Stars knew theyd be in for a tough game in their first clash against Warragul, as they wouldnt be able to play their typical brand of flowing football due to the heavy conditions.
The Stars started strongly, with Jordan and Ethan Tomas linking up well down the left-hand side. A sharp interchange of passes by the two brothers put Jordan into some space, which he sprinted on to before pulling the ball to the edge of the box for Barry Farrell to smash in the first goal for the Stars.
More hard running from Jordan led to a cross that Ethan controlled with his chest before putting in to the back of the net.
Warragul started to string some passes together and managed a decent shot which was well saved by Bremner, playing in goal for the Stars.
Jordan Tomas was having a fantastic day; his strength on the ball and ability to make the right pass was putting the Stars in control.
A determined run by Jordan for what others may have seen as a lost cause resulted in a pin-point cross, which was volleyed in by Ethan for his second goal. Mitch Jackson popped up to slot in a fourth Stars goal and a well-deserved moment of glory, reflecting his hard work during the first half.
Warragul managed to pull one back with a well hit shot from outside the box, which the keeper got a finger to, but it wasnt enough to push it over the bar. It was 4-1 to the Stars at half time.
The second half saw the Warragul team come out firing and they commanded the first 20 minutes. A long b...
