Well looks like the seasons on its way out. The last few weekends have destroyed the snow at the lower base of both Turoa and Whakapapa. Took my flatmates up for the weekend as they had a grabone voucher but, closed Sat/Sun. Went for a drive to show the flatties the "snow" and Alpine Shreadow is pretty much gone. Both Home Run and Clarry's are mud and rocks, so its only really upper mountain thats open now. Makes me contemplate if its worth even going up now considering school holidays have just started :/
Shame I missed your post Jollybored. I've been up there every weekend of the season
Ah guts! Yeah, I haven't been able to go as much as I wanted this year.
I did however go up sat/sun just gone; sun was beaming, not too many kids around. All in all not too bad.
Snow is still OK up top some soft spots here and there.
