  • For your vehicle, you may require snow chains, a shovel for heavy snowfalls, and ensure antifreeze levels are up to manufacturer’s specifications for alpine conditions.
  • When leaving the hut for your day on the mountain, write your intentions for the day and an approximate return time on the Lodge intentions board, even if you are leaving the Whakapapa side on a day trip e.g. to Turoa, Ohakune etc.
  • Leave a contact cell number if you have one.
  • Have a safety plan, places to meet, way back to the lodge or transport, map, compass and adequate warm clothing. Be prepared.
