Enter more details, check yes for Snowracer insurance. 
Under the emergency contact details there is the section for Participation award.
Select yes for "Are you a member of a ski club/organisation?"
Then select "Other" and type Murray Valley Bushwalkers Inc. 
Follow on and complete your registration. 
I recommend booking the bus early because $10 up and down the mountain is a bargain.
