Tūroa cannot catch a break at the moment!
Posted on their Facebook page @MtRuapehu, Ross Copland, RAL CE has reported that the High Noon express chair’s recent run in with an avalanche has left it out of order for the rest of the ski season.
“I’m really sorry to say the news isn’t good. There are a number of damaged wires in the rope that would require approximately 250 metres of new rope to be installed,” Copland said.
Manufacturing this special rope in Europe and getting it to New Zealand could not be done within a timeframe that could have it installed this season, he said.
