2889 Ruapehu Circuit with a difference

Weekend 11 - 12th July 2020

This trip begins on Friday night with a drive down to Whakapapa to spend the night at the Waikato Ski Lodge (we will do a road and toilet stop on the way there to have get something to eat and drink). With limited daylight hours, an early start is needed on Saturday morning and begins with recommended use of the new Sky Gondola to aid us a good way up the mountain before we start cramponing the rest of way up and over the Ruapehu summit  to descend down the Whangaehu glacier to the Alpine Club Hut and thenv continuing downslope to the Tukino Ski Lodge to spend Saturday night there The Lodge will provide us with dinner and breakfast as part of the accommodation cost so you won't need to carry a dinner or breakfast.  
 
Another early start on Sunday morning is needed as we have to walk around a third of the mountain back to Whakapapa! The day entails walking down the Tukino 4x4 road to where it crosses the Round the Mountain track. At this point we head eastwards on the Round the Mountain track across the Mangatoetoenui Stream bridge before cutting off the track to sidle north east off-track around the mountain before picking up the Round the Mountain track again approximately 2kms east of Lower Tama Lake. From here it ishould be a 2 and half hour walk back to Whakapapa Village and our transport back to Hamilton.  
 
Be aware that this is an adventurous alpine winter trip and both days will be fairly demanding if quite different. We will need to carry overnight packs to accommodate sleeping bags, alpine rated clothing, crampons, ice ax and helmets and lunch and snack food for two+ days. We do not need to carry tents. 
Also note this trip will not be cheap! We have to cover transport, 2 nights of accommodation and use of the Sky Gondola. The trip is also highly dependent on the weather. A call to proceed will need to be made early next week depending on the weather forecast.  
I will give you a run down of the estimated costs shortly.
