Winter is definitely not over yet....!!! Over the past few weeks mother nature has shared more snow with us (all the way down to the Ohakune lodge) and there is some awesome spring skiing to be had. There is availability in the lodges so make a booking and enjoy the last month of skiing.
Last week the 2019 Rangatira Scholars had their week of tuition at Ohakune. Despite challenging weather conditions they had a great time learning new skiing skills and tricks, how to tune their skis and made lots of new friends. Thanks to Guy & Jane Rodger for running the Scholarship week. Under 5's weekend was also a blast last weekend at the Ohakune lodge with lots of fun had by all.
