SNOW SKILLS TRAINING Medium 

Brian Renwick Email: brenwick2@icloud.com

Phone: 021 0824 9260

Walk in to somewhere with suitable snow cover, and preferably a hut nearby. Ice axes and crampons required. Learn French technique! Also German and American. The object of the training is to hone existing snow skills or develop them if you are new to snow travel using gear, to practice movement on different types and gradients of snow slopes, to gain confidence in what is comfortably doable, and avoiding what is not. Self arresting technique in varying conditions. Snow travel using walking poles will also be covered. Recognition and avoidance of avalanche risk. Planning a snow trip. I will endeavour to find experienced mountaineers who might or might not be members, to ensure a good ratio of instructors, and a good range of ideas and techniques.

Conical Hill Fit  $NR

Kate Krawczyk Email: NTC.President@yahoo.com

Phone: 5476463

A day walk into the Hope Range. A steep climb, lovely bush and good views. We travel to Tui via Tapawera and follow Hodgkinsons Rd till the start of the track. The track goes through an area of pine forest at a reasonable incline, then as the incline increases we are in beech forest. The route is fairly steep and follows a ridge till it flattens off towards the peak. Return the same way.
