At Manawatu Lodge

Transport and Lodge Fees

Howie Nicholson, Ken Mercer /

Backcountry travel above the bushline in Winter often means travelling in snow.  This course is an introduction to basic snowcraft, including travelling in an alpine environment, use of an ice axe and crampons, arresting a fall, navigation, and more.   We will be based at the Manawatu Lodge, which is an ideal launchpad for each day's activities.

We will travel to the lodge on Friday evening, so that we may make the most of the time available over the weekend.  More details to follow, but to assist with planning, please register your interest now. 

There are 10 places available.
