Neil Winchcombe Loop in the Snow, Tararuas

This was our third attempt to complete this ridge, I had taken the kids upto Field Hut a few weeks earlier and played in the snow. I knew the snow would still be on the tops but was unsure what the condition would be. I rented ice axes and we took our poles and micro spikes.

It was a magic day on the tops, some hard work breaking through knee deep soft snow in places but no ice.

Here is our route and video footage.
