        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • We shared a van with a medium group heading to Alpha Hut, and left Waiohine gorge road end at around 9:30. We first “investigated” a trail that headed down to the river, before heading back and crossing the river on the swing bridge. We next “investigated” the start of the trail to Cone hut, before ...

        • 26 May 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • “The lights are moving—the aliens are coming for us now!” I jokingly teased Tony and suggested we both hide in our tents… Tony and I had decided to do a two-day tramp exploring our own backyard a bit more—a circumnavigation of Mt Matthews that would include both on and off-track travel in the Remutaka Forest ...

        • 26 May 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • “Is anyone alarmed that I’m still considering the original plan?” This question came on Friday night from our trip leader James after consulting the weather forecast to see that not only did we have a severe weather warning for the Tararua Range due to heavy rain rolling through, there were also gale force winds forecasted ...

        • 26 May 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The mountain has had more sprinklings of snow indicating that things up there are getting cooler along with the days getting shorter. The lift operator is flat out making snow in the Happy Valley beginners’ area which will be open from Queens Birthday weekend. Our Summer rates apply over Queens Birthday. We can only open ...

      • 1000 Acre Plateau
        • 12 May 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Ferry booking mix-ups and more than an hour’s delay to board meant it was well after 10pm when we arrived at the Matiri Valley West Bank road end. The hydro scheme construction works mean the walk in to Lake Matiri hut is now only 50min mostly on construction road, which during working hours you need ... Read more

        • The mountain has had a few sprinklings of snow indicating that things up there are gettingcooler along with the days getting shorter.

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • What a fantastic way to spend Easter! A very memorable experience kayaking the Marlborough Sounds indeed. What made this trip so special? Everything that could go right, went right. If anything didn’t go to plan then it effortlessly became an adjusted plan. An early start to the long weekend on Thursday with an anticipated ferry ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • How long have you tramped for? I have tramped for about 13 years. Tony suggested that we head to The Camel, on the St Arnaud Range, a place where as teenagers he and his two brothers went for their first South Island tramping trip. The clincher for me was Tony’s story of a tin under ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The Ruahine Ranges pulled out all the stops for this tramp, with varied terrain, the opportunity to use the gear for every weather in our packs, breathtaking views, and sounds of the rare Whio and rushing water. Taking the long way round via Tunupō loop we were well rewarded for our 8 hour tramping effort, ... Read more

        • I was so happy when I saw there was a surf trip on the WTMC’s online schedule. I love tramping, but how cool is it to get to do other activities with your tramping friends!As there was no leader yet, Werner and I signed up to lead the trip.

        • 25 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The mountain is continuing to provide good weather and the gondola is now operating again after a short maintenance break. Ruapehu Alpine Lifts are completing work on the lifts so here is hoping all is up and running for winter this season. At our last meeting we decided that we would not increase our accommodation ...

        • Nearly a year ago when elected President I couldn’t have come close to imagining all the year would bring for the club. It’s easy to focus on the COVID-19 challenges but there’s more to celebrate. What a year! It’s been wonderful to see so many trip reports over the last month or so on our ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • We’ve regrouped at the top of a 300m long stretch of steep scoria on the way down the north ridge of Mount Taranaki. The sun blazes from a cloudless sky, there’s no wind and it’s hot – a heat haze shimmers off the dusty slope. Having climbed over 1500m today our legs are tired and ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • At 7.45 am seven bright-eyed and eager trampers stepped out of the WTMC Ruapehu Lodge and set off up Mt Ruapehu. It was a great day for a climb—blue skies with barely a breath of wind. It didn’t take long before we left the road and stepped our way across shingle and large rocks, tinged with ... Read more

        • On the Saturday morning at 7.30 am six still half-asleep but excited punters met at the train station and set off in the van making our way slowly to the Poads Road end to start our walk. The beauty about leaving at an early time on a Saturday morning is that there is no traffic ... Read more

      • Carkeek Ridge (and Carkeek Hut)
        • 7 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • I have been determinedly Tararua hut-bagging for a couple of years now, having realised I’d haphazardly visited about three quarters of them. Carkeek Hut is one of the most difficult to get to being right in the middle of the range with no DoC-maintained tracks to it. I was waiting for a good weather weekend ... Read more

      • Manawatu Gorge Trail
        • 6 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • This was essentially a day trip cleverly disguised as a weekend trip, leaving Friday night and returning later than expected Sunday arvo, yet only tramping during the day on Saturday. As such we had nearly as many adventures off the trail as on! Most of us were belatedly “getting back into it” post lockdown. I ... Read more

        • What better way to spend a fine weather Sunday than an easy WTMC day walk into Mitre Flats and then back to the roadend via the Waingawa River. Four of us enjoyed the perfect conditions for an approximately 8 hour round trip. Here is a 3 minute video of some of our fun-filled day.
