This year’s event is mainly private farmland. We gratefully thank and acknowledge the support of the landowners, Orari Gorge Station, Waimarie, Waihi Station, Port Blakely Forest, Holmes family and DOC. Please ensure the trust they have placed in us is justified. 

Please ensure your gear, especially footwear and socks, are clean, dry, didymo free and have no dirt or seeds before coming to the event. Also straight after the event do the same cleaning thanks. Our continuing use of public and private land is dependent on this.

Event meal
Community fundraising through local provision of an after event meal has always been a part of Heights of Winter. This year, PAPO are proud to partner with Woodbury school who will provide the catering. Both 12hr and 6hr events will have a full post-event meal consisting of a soup starter, a main of beef, pulled pork or falafel burger and dessert. 

From the HoW team, we wish you luck and hope you have a good day.
