Pure Alpinism, mountaineering adventures in NZ

Alpinism & Ski Wanaka

change of colors, change of season

Summer climbing trips in NZ are gone again until later in the year but autumn mountaineering adventures can be stunning too. Mountain guide Gaz has just returned from an NZMGA course for future guides and has now put his mountaineering gear in the shed for a break. He’ll work on his aerial photography missions with his drone, the hexacopter. Summer in Europe is not too far away and the Icelandic mountain guides have requested the chief’s presence for more expert training.

The Alpinism & Ski team have had the opportunity to visit the Albert Burn chalet recently, a beautiful area, great views of Mt Aspiring and we had some pesky Keas around too, making sure we did not sleep in. A most interesting alpine flora session we had too, a separate album coming up. Here a few pictures of the latest Pure Alpinism 7 day trip, to Westland National Park with Charles Day from Australia:
