Mt Te Aroha Summit in Snow!
« on: June 01, 2009, 03:46:12 PM »
Here is a rare bag. Climbed Te Aroha (again) today and it snowed at the summit.  Anyone bagged a peak further north than this to be greeted with snow??? Or can i bestow that record upon myself (and Ash Bash and Claire Bear)

I guess The Pinnacles occassionally get snow which is further north, but still very rare!!

I had a borrowed camera which unfortunately battery went flat on before the heaviest flurries came through but got a few pix and a good 75MB movie (which yeah is a bit big to upload). If you look carefully at the last still shot i took (picture 4) you can see white streaks which is the snow.  After this it basically got blown up the face of the mounthain and over the top - it was snowing sideways
