The Mt Bogong Club was formed in 1965 to promote the environmentally sensitive and safe recreational use of Mt Bogong, to maintain the Cleve Cole Memorial hut and Michell Refuge for community use, provide a safety refuge for those in need of assistance on the mountain and to organise social and recreational events for club members. The Mt Bogong Club works closely and in conjunction with Parks Victoria, the manager of the Alpine National Park, including Mt Bogong.
Potential Club members are required to have walked to the top of Mt Bogong, have completed a Work Party and then be nominated for membership. The current annual membership fee is $20 or $40 for families.
Members have access to the member’s facilities at Cleve Cole ($5 per night) and participate in all Club activities. There is an annual Rort that includes an annual general meeting where members complete the formalities and catch up over dinner.
Dear all Bogongus Splendiferii,
Please see the attached pdf prepared and updated by MtBC safety guru Rick Head.
Keep safe, read it, ski and board within your capabilities and only when you are sure of the terrain into which you are venturing.
Keith Jackson, MtBC President
To all Bogong Splendiferii and Mountain folk,
Our sincere condolences and commiserations to the families of Daniel Kerr and Martin Buckland, two passionate snowboarders who have been lost doing what they love on the upper slopes of Mount Bogong.
Please be careful this winter, this season be especiallyvigilant to look after yourselves and your mates on the hill.
'Evening all Splendiferii,
Dear all Splendiferii Bogongus,
The old sliding aluminium window had served its purpose for many years but the rollers had broken down and was difficult to operate.
New member Ola had a couple of wooden hopper windows made up with winders to replace it.
The window assembly was installed during the 2013 annual workparty.
