    Anyone looking to carpool up this sat?
    I'm hoping to hit falls or buller this weekend, would like to stay for the night ski as well if possible.

    Cant take my own car as I dont have chains & it probably wouldnt make it up there anyway :)

    Happy to chip in & help drive if needed; I have an Open and drive stick.

    my car is FWD, front shock absorbers are shot and sitting too low to mount chains.
    batt is kinda weak as well and has trouble starting on chilly mornings.

    Even if I did make it up I might have trouble getting down lol.

    Indeed, wrong state even :)
    I might hit buller instead since its a shorter drive.
    prolly take a bus up from mansfield.
