FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes. All attendees must be over the age of 18 years of age. Most women age between 28 years-65 years on our trips.

How many ladies will there be in total?

8 women + leader Monique.

I don't have a 4WD to drive up the mountain. Does this matter?

No. We suggest if you can get access to a 4WD for the weekend it will make the trip and hassle of putting on chains much easier. It is not highly likely you need chains to drive to the Tube Station although on occasions this can happen. We will have enough cars to sort options for lifts up to the Tube Station.

Do I need to bring my own dinner?

You are most welcome as we have a kitchen. We will be going out as a group to the restaurant on Saturday night to have a dinner but you are welcome to prepare meals at the lodge. We provide a yummy breakfast each morning and dinner on Friday night is provided.

Do I need to know how to Ski or Snowboard?

We encourage you if you are a beginner to still attend, although you will be advised to go into a lesson for the day or half day. If you are expereinced, you can ski off and come and meet us for lunch. Monique is an experienced skiier and boarder and will be able to join advnaced riders and assist beginners.

Where do I hire my gear from?

Hire shops are open late in Jindabyne. We recommend the BP service station. They are quick for service and have great gear. We will offer you a 10% discount to hire gear at the BP station.

What time do we leave Sunday morning?

We will need to be out by 9am from the cottage.

I want to attend but I don't want to drive on my own. Is there an option for car pooling from Sydney or elsewhere?

Yes. Depending on where the ladies all live, we will open a Facebook Group to connect everyone and see who is driving and can offer lifts.

What if I get sick or have an injury and cannot attend?

If You are prevented from attending a trip as a result of illness, the death of an immediate family member, jury service, or other reason beyond your control which we consider significant, we will agree to your booking being transferred to another person who satisfies all the conditions applicable to the trip, subject to You and the other person accepting liability for full payment of the trip cost and any additional costs arising from the transfer provided that we must be given at least 21 days written notice of the proposed change, otherwise cancelation from illness/injury apply.

If illness or injury prevents you from attending a trip and you wish to cancel your booking, Women Want Adventure requires a medical certificate and written notice to complete the cancelation.
