This labour weekend, by popular demand, we have booked out a bunch of beds at the National Park Backpackers and we plan to do some skiing boarding and other snow shenanigans for Labour weekend.

This nominal fee charged here is simply to confirm your spot and is basically the estimated return trip cost (share of gas) plus up and down the mountain each day in private cars. You pay as you go when down there for:
- Food.
- Accommodation (we will reserve it for you with YHA, expect $30 a night up to $80 a night for a private room).
- Mt Ruapehu lift passes.
- Any gear you hire.

We will road trip down in 4x4's. Put your hand up if you want to drive. Let's try to reduce emissions / traffic by going in the minimal number of cars.

The plan is to depart Chapel Bar & Bistro 6pm Friday night (park up nearby), drive down to National Park.

We ski Turoa on Saturday (weather permitting) then dinner at Powderhorn Chateau 'Apres Ski'. Then Sunday we can ski Whakapapa for a change in scenery.

Monday could be indoor rock climbing / half day ski / half day hike - or just lounge around in the accommodation.

We arrive back to Chapel Bar & Bistro for a pizza and beers.

Space for at least 10!
