The remote Western Faces of Kosciuszko National Park have been getting mountains of attention recently as more and more people venture out into the backcountry. Never has that been more apparent than in 2020. It had been a few years since I’d been out there, so when the crew from Norfolk Wild and a few other mates hatched a plan alongside surf photographer Guy Williment to venture out back, I was frothing to show off Australia’s best skiable terrain.
Photographer Guy and his brother Zander Williment charge in the surf up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, while the crew from Norfolk Wildspend all summer long chasing big trout in the high country’s rivers, but none of them had yet had the chance to stare in awe at Australia’s steepest terrain.
As we crested Mt Twynam, there was a crew about to drop up on Carruthers Peak, while another scaled The Sentinel, it was almost like we’d arrived on the set of a ski movie – minus the helicopters. Judging by these photos it’s safe to say that the Western Faces put on a show for their newest fans.
