Families can also join in on the Labour Day fun with a treasure hunt on our new Family Loop. The Family Loop consists of Kākāriki Down and the first part of Matt & Gary before looping back to Jack’s Spot. Treats at Velo will be waiting for any kid who finds a hidden egg and the first three kids to find a hidden egg and make their way back to Velo get a special prize! No registration required. The treasure hunt will last until all of the eggs have been found! 

Trails Open:

If the weather behaves, we should be able to open all of the Upper Mountain with the exception of Rocky Borrow which is going to take a bit more work to get ready. You can check the trail status throughout the weekend here.
