Participant Information

Based on the VOC registration page, the Waddington hut will be full Dec 26 onwards. In an attempt to beat the rush end enjoy the hut at its best, I am aiming to skin in on the 22 and out on the 25, home in time for Xmas Dinner. 


From Page 111 in the Baldwin Book 

  • The Waddington Hut is a comfortable base to explore the surrounding peaks and meadows.
  • There is excellent skiing accessible from the hut, with everything from gentle alpine meadows to long runs down steep avi paths. 
  • Approach - 9km
  • Elevation Gain - 1010M

I have a 4 runner and large cargo box so I am confident for transport of a party of 4. Open to expanding the group to 2 vehicles and 6-8 people.  Passengers should be prepared for a $20 spend as this is a long drive (approx 4 hrs)
