How do I join in?

Upcoming ski trips are listed on this website, in the monthly Tararua Tramper magazine, and on the ski noticeboard at the clubrooms.

To sign onto a trip, contact the leader of the trip to discuss the trip, transport arrangements (usually a car pool), and equipment. Alternatively, come along to any Tuesday night club meeting and put your name on the relevant trip list on the ski noticeboard.

If you need to hire ski equipment, the trip leader can recommend some ski hire shops.

For more information come along to one of the regular club meetings and chat with a member of the ski committee.
