Names by Thurs 1st May.   
 
Details:  Joint trip with Southland Tramping Club. Meet at 9 Denbigh St Arrowtown at 9am to sort out car pooling. There are only 5 from Ingill at this stage. We will leave a car at Glencoe Rd (to take drivers back to start later), and we will then drive to Crown Range saddle. Will walk up ridge to Crown Peak ( highest point on Crown Range), then down to Brackens Saddle & then down onto Glencoe Rd. Its a 500m ascent but a 1100m descent. Could be very cold on the tops so warm clothing ...take thermos (optional) and water. Naturally its going to be weather dependent, if needed another trip lower down somewhere will be 2nd choice.

Contact: Kay   
More Information:  The proposal is to do this trip in 3 days. I intend to leave Saturday morning about 8am and drive to the Kepler Car park, drop our packs and then take the cars to Rainbow Reach to be waiting for us when we finish the track. If anyone is interested in doing the track in 4 days, that could be accommodated too. If there is any question of difficulties with snow or bad weather across the tops, I thought we would look at walking the Hollyford track in to Lake Alabaster and out again. Be prepared for winter conditions and come self contained regarding food etc. Names to me please by Wednesday 7 May.

You can hire snow shoes in Queenstown.
I have my own snow shoes and would be interested in leading a club snow shoeing trip on the 17th August . 

An alternative is to hire snow shoes ($25-00) at the snow farm and do a trip on the Pisa Range, say up the Prince burn to Column Rocks and/or the summit of Mt Pisa and return via the Kirtle burn with a stop at the Kirtleburn Hut .
There are 11 people booked to go on this trip and there are two more spaces in cars if anyone else is keen!
