In September a group of interested ATC people met to map out our multi day trips for next year.

It’s going to be a helluva year !

There is now a draft plan out for our weekend and longer trips for next year, and it looks stunning. Make that STUNNING!

How about this to get you salivating:

·         To wind down after your busy summer programme, you can head over to Gisborne and climb Mt Hikurangi.

·         Then at Easter you can tackle the Central Ruahines. If you feel so inclined, join the Easter/Anzac extended trip for a 8-9 day loop taking in Sunrise Hut, Ruahine Corner, Mokai Patea, Te Atua Mahuru & more.

·         White Island, Matemateonga and Kai iwi Lakes are in there for you during the colder months. Plus of course the winter trip, which this year is eyeing up the Abel Tasman and Queen Charlotte.

·         You can traipse over your old favourites Mt Taranaki and Mt Ruapehu, and you can pencil in the Ureweras for Labour weekend.

·         After then you can knock off the full Kaimai Ridgeway traverse and chalk up another weekender in the Kaimanawas. You couldn’t get better training for the upcoming summer than that.

Just as well we’re all young and fit, eh!

Of course the programme is still to be finalised, so may still change. More details later.
