I currently have a Buddhist Group staying at Snowline Lodge through until 8 Jan. This is a silent retreat so I would appreciate if any of your members are flying from Cheeseman Top carpark over the next few days that they don’t go up to the Lodges.

Magic Mountain Road Maintenance. VOTES NEEDED.

Part 1;

Magic Mountain near Omarama has provided some of the best flying in NZ for over 25 years. It has always been a challenge to drive up but the track has now deteriorated to the point where a bulldozer or grader was needed to make it safe. For many years funds were collected at the XC Classic, which went into a special CHGPC fund and paid out as required. Since the death of the owner (who used a grader on it) there was nobody available to maintain the road so the fund was abandoned and maintenance has been by manual labour since 2008.
