So you are interested in joining us on another adventure up the mountain.
You don't have to be a skier or a snowboarder to come and enjoy this trip.
Many have come up for their first time on the snow or just to party away from home.
Rooms are being allocated and I will be allocating once all payments are confirmed. Rooms sleep between 2-4 people and there are a combination of bunks, singles and double beds. Rooms are provided with a bottom sheet, pillow with pillowcase and a hot water bottle. Sleeping bags/duvet and towels are BYO. I allocate the double rooms to those couples who book first (please advise if a couple). Room keys are optional and require a $5 cash deposit per room key issued, which is fully refundable on departure provided keys are returned.
Check-in is anytime from 3pm on Friday afternoon and check-out is 10am on the Sunday.
This trip includes Friday and Saturday nights only. If anyone wishes to stay at Snowy Waters Lodge longer, you would need to organise this directly with the Sandy the owner. Rates are viewable on their website. Obviously you would need to arrange your own transport if you wish to extend the stay.
You are welcome to arrange yourselves but with your help I can assist in arranging carpooling. We have been successful previous years in matching those nearby travelling at similar times. The cost of petrol has climbed so lets make the goal to not overfill the carpark and have the party start from when you leave home. If you can provide transport please advise how many people you can take with you, remember people with ski gear can take up a bit more room. Also let us know if it is 4WD and/or if you have chains. Please note these are not required to get to the lodge, or usually the ski fields, as the road are sealed all the way up the mountain. Chains are rarely needed but just in case required we can carpool up the mountain. Getting out of the city on a Friday evening can take a while even without have to pick anyone up along the way, so I will try and match up drivers and hitchers by the easiest routes for all involved.
Remember to not only cover your share of petrol for the trip but also a contribution to cars expenses. $10-15 each passenger is fair.
Together we will cook communal breakfasts Saturday & Sunday mornings and dinner Saturday night. We offer a range that does cater for gluten free and vegatarian but please let me know in advance if your needs differ.
As the meals are communal you will be required to pitch in at some stage of the weekend.
Drinks are BYO.
Please drink responsibly and remember that the shops are very limited in Raetihi and the nearest centre is Ohakune.
