Canberra Alpine Club

Adventure begins here

Our club

Established in 1934, the Canberra Alpine Club is known for its friendly atmosphere and club spirit.

Welcoming members of all ages and abilities, we’re much more than a winter sports club. 

Our two lodges give members and their guests the best of both worlds. Stay on the shores of Lake Jindabyne or directly on the slopes of Perisher and enjoy the beautiful Snowy Mountains all year round.

Club History

The Canberra Alpine Club was formed in July 1934 at Kiandra, the birthplace of skiing in Australia.

With its first chalet built in 1938 at Mount Franklin, the objective of the club was to promote skiing and bushwalking and foster alpine conservation.

While our members now enjoy a wide range of activities, the club’s founding principles have stayed the same.
