Carol Kelly’s Ski Weekend

18th and 19th September

Ruapehu’s rapidly retreating snowline did little to deter a lodge-full of club members enjoying a fabulous weekend on Mt Ruapehu, 18/19 September. It was a case of ‘the higher you go, the better it gets’. The skiers enjoyed spring snow on the Far West, two climbers scampered up the Pink Floyd Buttress on the Pinnacles and the ski touring contingent ventured up and down both the Whangaehu and the Mangatoetoenui Glaciers. Some of those without skins plodded up to the top of Pinnacle Ridge at the end of each day to enjoy the extended run back to Hut Flat.

Party members
Whangaehu glacier skiers were Rob Miller, Tim Stern, Ket Bradshaw. Murray Fitzgerald.
