New Trail Alert!

Hey everyone! Winter is fast approaching and Mt. Ruapehu is receiving it's first set of big snow storms for the winter! For a lot of us that means skiing and snowboarding season is about to begin, however, that definitely does not mean it's time to put the mountain bikes away or slow down on the trail rebuild efforts!

The RMTBC has been working on the final completion stages of the new trail called Boost and will be soon completing the addition to Rakehead which will serve as one of the main access/climbing trails.

Our club's president, Greg, has put a huge amount of time into getting Boost ready for riding and it is shaping up very nicely! We are also super stoked for all the help and efforts we've recevied from our club members who have come out and given us a hand on working bee days - you are all rockstars and we are so fortunate to have your assistance!

At this time of the year we're often battling it out with unfavourable wet weather and unforunately over the recent weeks our area has been receiving A LOT of rain. However we've still been bundling up in our wet weather gear and getting out there with our handtools and making progress on Boost.

Check out some recent photos from working bees and stay tuned for our next working bee day coming up!
