Since you need to carry everything you want to take into Illawong, many members pack as light as possible for a trip to Illawong Lodge but not at the expense of safety.. The trip is awkward and challenging when skis, poles and a heavy pack are involved. Non perishable food is provided in the lodge to assist in keeping your pack as light as possible.
Consider this packing list for winter and a packing list for summer at the lodge, though neither is exhaustive. Inexperienced skiers may wish to get some help carrying gear on their first trip.
