Mangahao release

Date: 
Saturday, March 18, 2017 - 10:00 - 16:00
Section: 
Mangahao Gorge

The Mangahao release unfortunately cannot proceed as the gates have failed. The slalom course will be operating from 9.30.

Update, 20 March: Nigel Parry, President of Whitewater NZ says, "Hi all, apologies to all those that travelled to the Mangahao release on Saturday. The operator informed us that the gate failed to open at 8 a.m. on the day and unlike the weather (rain events are also problematic for Mangahao releases) that is something that should be controllable. We will be talking to Trustpower next week on next steps and options to restore reliable recreational releases."
