NGĀ WAI HEKE refers to the cascading waters that descend in close proximity to this chairlift. These waterways help form the Mangaturuturu and Magateitei Streams that are part of the Whangaehu catchment.

Turoa, Saturday 7th July 2012.

This afternoon the Nga Wai Heke Chair opened under blue skies. Celebratory bubbles was served to those who rode the first lifts (while stocks lasted). The black run "Cinch" was groomed directly behind where the High Flyer Drive used to be and was today's path down. It looks like new blue run "Blue Holiday" will be next as they were pushing snow there this afternoon.

Here are my photo highlights:
