Our 'grand finale' for the year, we're hitting BOTH Turoa and Whakapapa (staying on Whakapapa) for this epic four day trip..

About this event

This is our GRAND FINALE ski trip of the year, and it's a doozy for you!

We are staying at Whakapapa ski area (in the snow / in a hut)

Will hit Whakapapa on Saturday (shared dinner Sat night)

Turoa on Sunday (dinner in Ohakune),

Whakapapa Monday then head home!

Join us!? Details below:

For the 2022 snow season we're hosting just FOUR group ski trips starting in July (this is the LAST (officially) of them. We're staying on-mountain actually in the snow, in a rustic ski chalet / lodge with bunks for 20 people.

This year we are leaving Auckland earlier -1pm so people can work a half day, knock off early, then join us.

*Leaving earlier means we can arrive at a more decent hour on mountain than past years, so we can safely park the bus and get up to the ski hut (often in the snow!).

This is for YOUR safety, due to icy roads that stop getting salted and graded around 5pm *

Who is this trip for?

These trips are for all skill levels, so beginners through to pros are invited: everyone is welcome but ages 12yo+ please as we are mostly a grown-up crowd, with wines / drinking at dinner time totally accepted!

Once on the mountain, each person 'does their own thing', whether that's getting lessons in Happy Valley, or heading right to the top of the West t-bar... the choice is yours, the time on mountain is 'unguided'.

We suggest people of the same skill level hang out, share skills, help one another. At minimum, we catch up at lunch time (usually Knoll Ridge cafe!).

Our friendly crew will help first timers get rental gear, find their way to the slopes and show you the cafes. You will be supported, no matter what level you're at.

Please join the chat at the Got To Get Out Snow Club (join here). Lots of chat and photo + gear sharing.

DETAILS:

Bus tickets:

Meet 1pm sharp outside Archie Café, Ponsonby, Auckland. We will have you back to Ponsonby around 8pm MONDAY.

We can also get you at Bombay, Taupiri, Whatawhata, Pirongia.

Self drive tickets:

Self drive is ONLY for people who live outside of our bus route (e.g from Wellington, Taranaki, Palmy). Please save these limited self-drive tickets for those from outside the bus route so they have a chance to join us too.

You can leave home whenever you wish, but please arrive to National Park, likely around 5pm *stay in touch with the driver*. We will then drive you up the hill, or you can meet us at the Top of the Bruce Road around 6pm all going well.

We will stay in touch with you via text.

NB - yes there is space on the bus for your skis/boards/bags but we ask you pack light! Do not bring suitcases, because they are heavy to get to the hut in the snow!
