About this Event

Have you #gottogetout to Mt Ruapehu, Whakapapa & Tūroa Ski Areas?

Join the Got To Get Out Snow Club for this snow weekend!

For our very reasonable cost you get two wonderfully organised days on Mt Ruapehu, a guaranteed friendly crew, and experiences in a UNESCO World Heritage Park famous for it's geological and cultural significance.

Come and enjoy skiing/snowboarding on mountain, or you could even just take a ride on the Sky Waka for spectacular views up to the Knoll Ridge Cafe and do some walking or site-seeing.

Included:

The cost for this trip covers;

- Bus transport to and from Auckland (self-drive from other regions is possible for limited spots, see ticketing options)

- Transport to and from ski field (Whakapapa or Turoa depending on conditions and group decision

- 2 x nights accommodation

- Trip hosting.

This ticket does not include fees for the lift passes, gear hire or your food. We always BYO food.

Accommodation:

GTGO Snow Club stay in one of a couple of ski lodges available exclusively to us in Tongariro National Park.

Sometimes the accommodation is actually on-mountain (Whakapapa side) and sometimes is in National Park Village. All huts are well cared for, clean, comfy, and have bunk-bed style beds (you BYO sleeping bag)

How hard will it be?

This is a relatively easy trip because you determine your own skills on-mountain. We are not offering lessons - on the mountain you may like to book your own lesson.

A moderate level of fitness is required, especially if you are staying on-mountain due to the walk up to the hut.

If you have never skied or snowboarded before, someone from the GTGO will be willing to lend you a hand! We are a friendly welcoming bunch of outdoor lovers, led mostly by volunteers.

Schedule:

We will be leaving Auckland Friday evening and returning late Sunday, spending both days on the mountain (usually a half-day Sunday to be home at a reasonable time).

We can pick you up on the route from Auckland to Ruapehu, places like Bombay, Whatawhata, Huntly.

We usually stop in somewhere like Huntly for dinner on the Friday.

Food:

You BYO food to share for dinner on the Saturday night (kitchen equipment provided with the accommodation). You can most other things down there. You make your own breakfast.

We are looking forward to seeing you there, or one of our other dates this year! :)

Social impact:

Keep in mind, for every ticket sold, you are taking part in "Ski One Give One" whereby we get a kid outdoors for a day trip as a direct result of your purchase. Cheers for helping us to get Kiwis outdoors!
