Event description

Description

After an amazing season at the snow last year, Got To Get Out Snow Club has put together another season to remember where we want to get more Kiwis outdoors and experiencing the snow! Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned snow bunny, come join us for a fun filled season and #getout to the snow!


Each trip will be to Mount Ruapehu Whakapapa ski field. We will leave from the Torpedo7 K-Road store (corner K-road and Gundry Street) after work on Fridays and will return to Auckland CBD by Sunday night. We’ll stay in an on-mountain ski lodge, a super cool retro ski lodge actually ON the mountain (bunks, full kitchen and lounge) which is a convenient short walk from the ticketing offices on the mountain, so lucky us!

We have shared duties to clean up the lodge, and may or may not be the only people in the lodge, pending numbers.


The details for each weekend trip are as follows:


Costs:

Lodging/travel

$200+ booking fee per weekend trip, which covers your 2 nights of accommodation and secures your limited place in the transport and Snow Hut.

*Returning Got to Get Out Snow Club members (meaning you have attended a past GTGO Mt Ruapehu snow event) - 10% off!

*Torpedo7 Club members - 5% off!


Mountain passes:

Need to be purchased separately this year from Mt Ruapehu. These can be purchased ahead of time online or on the mountain upon arrival. If you have an RFID card from the previous season, you can pre-pay for your passes online and load them onto the RFID card to avoid the ticket lines!
