        • Tēnā koutou It’s been quite a mixed month for everyone and the club. At such a time, it’s important to not lose sight of the many recent great WTMC moments.

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club

        • 2 Aug 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • We have passed the first group of school holidays with a good turn out of families staying at the lodge over the two-week period. Unfortunately, only the lower mountain was open for skiing due to the poor covering of snow on the upper mountain. Happy valley was open most days for skiing and the Rangatira ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Bleary eyed I emerged from my car at Takapu Rd Station. Here I encountered my first obstacle: getting into the WTMC van. This was was far too difficult for half past six in the morning, taking a swift blow from Richard’s boot to finally dislodge the door from its jammed state. At Wellington Station we ... Read more

        • 25 Jul 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • So you think skiing at Ruapehu is a bit of a hassle. A lengthy drive to the WTMC Lodge, sharing bunkrooms with noisy (or not noisy enough) others, cooking, cleaning and the other odd jobs that are actually just part of lodge life are all too much for you? Well, if so, then you don’t ... Read more

      • Te Puia Tramp
        • 20 Jun 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Looking through past trip reports it seems the club has a tradition of organising Te Puia tramps over Queen’s birthday weekend. And it’s a great tradition; what’s better than soaking in hot pools on a winter tramp. So the 2021 tramp was organised to live up to the tradition and make the most of the ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Intro The group had signed up to do Syme Hut, but changed plans given the conditions and out of respect for the two climbers who lost their lives on Mt Taranaki 4 May.

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Having done the drive up to Taranaki on Friday night (as is traditional), we and the Easy-Medium group all stayed at Konini Lodge at Dawson Falls visitor centre. It’s a great facility with cooking equipment, hot showers, decent bunk rooms and the rest; although in my experience it’s always been cold – consider yourself warned. ... Read more

        • 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 ...

        • “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 ...

        • 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

        • 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
