        • 30 Jul 2020
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • It’s so good to be able to tramp again and to be able to focus on the new normal as a club. Last weekend we had five overnight trips running, very exciting after months of no trips and then only day trips! I was fortunate to go on one (Aorangi Crossing) – and have also ... Read more

      • Post-Lockdown Urban Tramping 2: Hemi Matenga, Waikanae
        • 30 Jul 2020
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Hemi Matenga has been on my walking list for some time, with Covid-19 Level 2 seeming like the perfect time to do this as an urban tramp. Jane and I met at Wellington station with 10+ kg tramping packs weighted with water and books, keen to explore some different local tracks.   We had an ... Read more

        • 29 Jul 2020
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • So the snow is falling and topping up unwanted slots, rocks and crevices. Pretty much on cue as it tends to fall during the first week of the school holidays. LiftsRAL, the lift operator, has advised which lifts will and will not be operating this season. There will be limited lifts operating due to many ... Read more

      • The *NEW* Flexible Alpine Schedule is here!
        • 29 Jul 2020
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The Club is trialling a new approach to some of our alpine trips this year. We want to avoid the work that goes into organising an alpine trip that is cancelled due to weather, and to give enthusiastic participants their best chance at getting some time on the snow.  Alongside our normal fixed schedule (which ...

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Walking from Powell Hut to Jumbo Hut in winter [Aimee] Tony said it was time for another trip. We all agreed. Outside of working hours, the best weather window was between Friday evening and Saturday mid-morning. Because of this, Tony suggested we go for a day walk, but at night. Recalling the last time we ... Read more

        • Mt Matthews from Corner Creek Walking from Corner Creek to the summit of Mt Matthews With Covid-19 still limiting the club to day trips, and some of us desperate to sleep in a tent again, Tony provided the answer with an overnight camping trip to Corner Creek Campsite on the South Coast at Palliser Bay. ...

        • 11 Jun 2020
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • City to Sea and Southern Walkway The City to Sea walkway is a fun mix of urban and trail walking with great views of Wellington and even the South Island on a good day. I’d finally gotten around to doing the walk during lockdown and enjoyed it so much that when the call went out ... Read more

        • I hope you’re all staying safe and well, and are able to get out on some tracks now that we’re at Level 2. I’ve managed a few walks on my local steps, some with my pack and my trusty boots, and including a wonderful morning recently around the Zealandia Fenceline with two other club members. ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • “And this is my snow saw,” said Nick, as he removed the gleaming blade from its holster. A strangely curved, unwieldy and yet hugely useful device for creating a snow cave, as I would find out later that weekend. Led by Nick H, we were a band of five who had gamely signed up for ...

      • Baring Head Conservation Trip
        • 27 May 2020
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • A club trip with a Saturday 9am start feels a bit decadent.  Grabbing some extra large almond croissants on the way to the meeting point, more so.  Even better though is the cause we are off to support – helping the Friends of Baring Head Trust in their work to restore the natural habit around ...

      • Breaking Free of Lockdown
        • 26 May 2020
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • When Prime Minister Jacinda Adern announced the country’s move to Level 2 effective 14 May 2020, I was poised over my laptop to organize a trip. I had very much been missing my tramping outings during lockdown. I sent out a desperate plea to a handful of recent tramping companions to come on a day ... Read more

Also, the weather forecast was not great and we hoped to get around the loop before the bad weather arrived. As it turned out we were only three so it was ... Read more

        • Aimee visited the Sub-Antarctic Islands and Antarctica in January 2020 and writes about the part of her journey that fascinated her the most – the wildlife. The hurricane force winds, towering waves and bitter cold of the Southern Ocean might lead one to think that the Sub-Antarctic Islands and Antarctica must be inhospitable and lifeless ... Read more

This also follows the recommendations of the FMC who run the NZ-wide competition. So – the plan at the moment is to have entries ... Read more

        • After an eventful Friday night camping which combined fire warning sirens and some local dance music playing at 4-5 am—both of which I managed to sleep through—things were going pretty awesomely on my first trip with the club. We were dropped off at the Daphne Hut car park and we picked up the trail behind ... Read more
