Ruapehu Rumblings from the Lodge – January 2015

New Years at Ruapehu Lodge
New Years at Ruapehu Lodge

Summer’s in full swing and the snowboard, skis and crampons are buried somewhere in the back of the loft.  But the Lodge remains the place to go to enjoy everything Tongariro National Park has to offer.

We had a great Open Lodge this year – the lodge was open for casual drop-ins from 26 December through to 12 January.  Over 60 people passed through to tramp, climb, mountain bike or just break the journey, get some peace from the holiday crush and watch the sunsets over Mt Taranaki.

There are lots of opportunities to get yourself up to the Lodge in the next month or two:

Book yourself in for your weekend away while the weather is great, the trout are biting and the tramping, mountain biking, cycle touring and hot pool soaking is all at its best.  I can vouch for the burgers at the Tussock Pub at the bottom of the hill, too!
