New Year, Next Adventure

What’s your New Year resolution?

While some of us face the “What the Hell” affect by overstepping a punishing self-set New Year’s resolution such as no more caffeine, no more chocolate or trying to commit to the Gym 5 times a week. Why not take upon the New Year with the goal to get outside? Even if it’s just for 15 minutes a day, science proves that being outdoors will make you a happier person.

The outdoors is Free

Forget Gym membership or those spin classes that’ll you’ll never stick too. Simply put on your hiking boots or runners and get back to nature, it’s as simple as walking the dog.

Why not ride your bike to work or climb to the top of a mountain- the possibilities are endless. Make New year your next Adventure.

Sleep Better

Our bodies perform best when we follow their natural circadian rhythms—the cycle of sunlight and darkness over the course of 24 hours, spending time outside while it’s still light out will help you produce melatonin, the hormone that controls sleep, and serotonin, a neurotransmitter that makes you feel awake and cheerful.

So when’s your Next Adventure?

Keep Safe in the NZ Backcountry

Keep Safe in the New Zealand Backcountry

With Rocky Mountains and expansive Alpine ranges, New Zealand has a vast amount of Backcountry to explore, perfect for a variety of snow adventures including skiing, snowboarding, hiking and climbing.

With so much terrain to be explored always remember to be prepared for the unexpected to happen.

Outdoor Safety Code Outside Sports NZ

Although we may not experience huge metres of snowfall like such places as Europe, Canada and America, the risk of avalanche is still extremely high in the New Zealand Backcountry. Whether snow, mud or rockfall you should be aware of the risks and what to do to avoid them or in the event that one should occur.

The weather in NZ Mountains can deteriorate extremely rapidly. Make sure you check the weather and avalanche forecasts before and during your trip for all of the time that you will be in the mountains and backcountry. Prepare for the worst conditions and ensure you can seek safe shelter.

This is a small piece of advice for you to consider before entering New Zealand backcountry. You should be well experienced in your undergoing activity, have a great understanding in the area you are entering and ensure that appropriate measures are in place within your group to recognise that when there is a problem the appropriate authorities are alerted. Ensure you and your group have in place, and fully understand a procedure to enable rescuers to find you quickly.

The New Zealand Outdoors Intentions process, endorsed by New Zealand's search and rescue agencies, provides 3 simple options which enable you to 'tell someone' all the details about your land-based trip into the outdoors.
