Blue Lake to Charlotte's Pass Access Map

From Blue Lake, head towards the south-east down towards the Snowy River, simply follow the drainage lines of the creek and you will find your way down to the river. Keep to left bank of the tributary to the Snowy and you will only need to make one river crossing. Once you cross skin alongside the Snowy until you reach a major fork in the river, where Club Creek and the Snowy diverges. Then simply skin up any line to the left up the ridge and you will find yourself within the Charlottes Pass resort boundary. The skin will take you a little over two and a half hours either way.
