For the more serious skiers and boarders out there, MacAlpine also takes a competitive team to compete at the Australian University Championship Snow Games.

In 2017, the Games will be held at Thredbo! Last time we visited Thredbo in 2015, the club brought back some shiny medals and the coveted Spirit of the Mountain Award. We hope to dominate again this winter.


The annual countdown to NZ 2017 has officially begun! Each year MacAlpine takes 88 students to Queenstown for 10 days of havoc! Filled with skiing, boarding and, of course, drinking.
