In reply to the recent comments on the removal of the Hut Flat rope tow at Whakapapa we can confirm the following for you.
We have reviewed the current standards required for lifts and rope tows in conjunction with RAL’s risk management policy and can confirm we are unable to meet or exceed that standard in the current environment.
We acknowledge that the Hut Flat rope tow has been a convenient facility for a number of customers over many years.
We will continue to enhance the Happy Valley beginners facilities as we believe this provides a premium product for our beginner snow sport customers at Whakapapa.
