Welcome to the website and online event calendar for the Otago Section of the New Zealand Alpine Club (OSONZAC). The list of upcoming events is below. If you are interested in joining or organizing an event, you will need to sign-up for an account. Already have an account? See our how-to guides if you want to know how to join or organize an event. We welcome members from the following sections: Central Otago, North Otago, Otago, Southland

Our calendar displays two types of events:

  1. Section events, where the trip organizer is a member of the NZAC who has been vetted by the section committee as being a trustworthy and competent trip leader.
  2. The section always welcomes new trip leaders!
  3. Private member events, where the trip organizer is any member of the NZAC. The section committee does not review privately organized events.

This website is a work in progress. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email the webmaster.
