    Nice if you got to Bogong ......
    NSW ain't got anything to compare with this.....Cleve Cole Hut.......

    and one must remember the Victorians are nicer friendlier folk ..
    ....this little Hut sits very close too the top of the main Bogong Cirque.....

    Oh these photos are quite recent should that be important!

    The strange looking structure is a dunny(toilet)not common on Main Range Kosy....enjoy these pics Maritxu....oh the comprehensive list by crackson just seemed to omit this splendid edifice.The bit displayed is open to the general public too.

    Think you should take another photo of the dunny after a busy weekend, guessing a poo tube might look pretty inviting

    So many Victorian hut pictures here. The OP said he wants to go to Kosiciuszko, so why are we putting Victorian pictures here. When we should be putting more into helping Maritxu with his NSW tour. Good luck Maritxu.

    Glad we could assist.

    Maritxu is landing in Melb according to OP....I am saying why waste time with NSW at all.....He wanted to go to Kosy at some stage but as we have pointed out it's really a waste of of time....anyway one can see Main Range from Bogong that is probably sufficient..

    He wanted to ski from Hut to Hut according to OP....so Team Bears are showing him one of the best Huts in the Australian Alps....Cleve Cole Hut.

    We are also showing that toilet facilities are provided..and one does not need to freeze ones asse off with a poo Tube.....

    These pics are the only ones of Cleve Cole displaying the area provided to the general public....

    No posts here for ten days from anybody else ...?.so I am glad to have invigorated discussion.

    Cheers everybody.....

    We did note that there were two opened toilets provided by Parks Vic..for public use on the leeward side of the toilet block.
    Cleaning the tiolet bowel is not really hard work I would have thought!

    We also would say that though Rawsons Pass has a wonderful toilet complex it is closed for the whole of winter.

    And to the best of my knowledge Seamans Hut has no temporary or permanent toilet so carrying a poo Tube is necessary.

    Now if I have posted something that's incorrect please feel free to reply.

    Remember Op...."I would like to go up Kosy at some point".

    They are the words Maritxu used.....

    I am saying don't bother .Much more rewarding to stay in Victoria...
    So discussions on Victorian Ski Touring and Huts are equally relevant.:thumbs:

    Hills ,mountains ,escarpments and cirques......all with "Huts" with in a drop-kick of the summits.Bluff,Howitt,Stirling Feathertop,Bogong,Nelse,Timms Lookout Mt
    Loch and Mt Wills.Elevations around 1.800m.Even Fainters have a small Hut for shelter close by.Correct me please if there are factual errors ?

    :thumbs:

    Do hope you have updated your Hut list to include :wave:Cleve Cole Hut:wave: which you must have omitted by accident!:ski:Hope you all liked those pictures of Cleve Cole Hut......
    Cheers:thumbs:

    Feel free to demonstrate the value of Seamans Hut...by posting photos of its interior.....

    Oh I see Mr T has posted a pic of Seamans Hut for Maritxu...perhaps we could get a look at its spacious interior and facilities.....perhaps crackson you could help out here with a few pictures so we have a bit of balance in the forum....

    Kosciusko I think is the correct spelling Jellybeans..

    I my self make those mistakes much of the time too.So please don't take it as a personal criticism of your post.
    Cheers....

    I stand corrected...for in 1977 The Geographical Names Board of NSW changed it from Kosciusko to Kosciuszko..adding a z.

    But we see Jellybeans has an i in the wrong place....so this is good we can all spell it now!

    Cleve Cole Hut is nice but it cannot be included on a hut to hut ski tour if you were wanting to ski all the time. There would be a great deal of walking involved if you came from the Bogong High Plains huts via Duane/T spur or Timms and Quartz. Get over this competition between the states. It is embarrassing and very high school. You should not be reliant on huts or toilets in any state.

    I think it's the current lack of snow Xplora it is a bit embarrassing but strangely entertaining as well.

    The OP from the EU is female and has asked about ski hire in VIC and NSW. I have sent a PM about ski hire as best as I know it in NSW and in VIC.
