Surveys for MBIE and RAL’s Voluntary Administrators

There are links to two surveys on the PwC website.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) wants all RAL Life Pass Holders to complete a Life Pass Holder Support Form to “confirm whether they would support a new entity operating the Turoa and Whakapapa ski fields, including the Sky Waka gondola, by paying a $2,500 transfer fee in order to be able to use their life pass to continue to be able to ski on Mt Ruapehu, under the operation of the new entity, if this commercial transaction is able to be implemented. The Life Pass Holder Support Form also asks each Life Pass Holder to confirm whether they would agree to pay a future levy of up to $250 per year for two or three years to fund ongoing capital maintenance and development”.   There is no commitment at this stage — it’s a non-binding indication of financial support. The form needs to be completed by by close of business on Thursday 24 November 2022.

PwC have asked that all people, who have an interest in skiing or snowboarding on Mt Ruapehu, complete another survey

Ruapehu Mountain Clubs Association (RMCA) have published an update for member clubs.

Sam Clarkson and Robert Krebs recommend that life pass holders vote "Yes", and they also want people to sign a petition about community representation.

Dave Mazey has summarised the situation in a Facebook post.
