EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
It is vital that you know how to get help at any time.

there is a problem.

On the mountain there is a MEDIC SKI PATROL. Should you need
help ASK.
At camp

Contact Mrs Frost, Mr De Beer, Mrs White or Mr Shirley or a
parent immediately if there is a problem.

In need of First Aid talk to Mr Alan Matheson, Mrs Vanessa
Waddell or a teacher.

A Doctor is always on duty 24 hours at the Turangi Health Centre
– 07 384 7576
At night

ON THE MOUNTAIN
GOING SKIING
By the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council
BE AWARE


Of the weather
This you are in a different (and
colder) environment. This will help you
decide What sort of clothing you
need to take
EFFECTS OF SUN
Higher altitudes have less water
vapour or dust to act as filters
for the sun, and reflection from the snow
gives you double dose (or more) of
potential sunburn. Protect all exposed
skin with an ultra-violet barrier cream and
renew it during the day. If you wait until
you can feel the sunburn, you’ve been
burned. Use lip salve against sun, wind and
dry, cold air. Wear glasses (or snow
goggles) - you’ll need these all the time,
even on overcast days. Ultra-violet rays
can be deceptive. Snow blindness is
sunburn of the eyes and is very painful.
EFFECTS OF THE
COLD
When skiing there is always a wind chill
factor because of wind and your movement
so if you get cold don’t delay – move to
shelter quickly. Warm up – put on extra
gear. Have a hot sweet drink. When you’re
warm you can start again. Children
particularly can chill very quickly.
Hypothermia (cold exposure) does occur
on ski fields. A person with exposure has
difficulty skiing and may fall a lot: may
feel tired, but may NOT feel cold: may
reject help, may seem dazed. This person
needs urgent help-act immediately. Walk
him/her down if it is safe or call the ski
patrol
PREPARATION
Make sure you have a good breakfast
before you go skiing, and take a lunch
break. Dress sensibly – see what clothing
you’ve got at home and borrow or hire the
rest. Special ski clothing is not necessary.
CLOTHING
A windproof jacket or parka. A WARM
HAT WHICH COVERS YOUR EARS.
Mittens of gloves (wool, leather or
polypropylene). A jersey or shirt made
from wool or synthetic like fibre pile.
Windproof and waterproof trousers, or
warm trousers and over
trousers.
Singlet (and
possibly long
johns) – wool or
polypropylene
are best.
Socks (wool or
polypropylene)
Remember –
several thin
layers of clothing are warmer than one
thick one.
Tuesday 28 / 8
Monday 27 / 8
CHILDREN
IF IN TROUBLE
Check you have everything you need for
your children before you leave home.
Children need the same type of clothing as
adults.
Clip their equipment together for easier
carrying.
Don’t forget sunburn cream, food and
identity cards (detailing the child’s name,
parents’ name, holiday address, meeting
time and place).
Remember: Children tire more easily than
adults and are more susceptible to
hypothermia; keep an eye on them and
check regularly to make sure they are not
getting cold or tired.



Ski field staff are there to help and
advise you. They will help you get on
to lifts/tows too A first aid station is
available
Ski patrol will help if you have an
accident. They’re usually in contact
with each other by radio but any
skifield staff member will help.
Ask if you need advice or assistance
EQUIPMENT
As a beginner hire your ski gear. This is
an easy way to find out what suits you.
You’ll need:
Ski Boots
The fit is very important.
Make sure they’re firm
but comfortable and
don’t cramp your toes
or instep.
Poles. Choose a
pole which feels
comfortable in
your hand.
Grips are
moulded and
come with straps


Ski in control

INTERNATIONAL SKI FEDERATION
RULES
RULE 1
RESPECT FOR OTHERS; A skier must
behave in such a way that he/she does not
cause others to be in danger
RULE 2
CONTROL OF SPEED AND SKIING
At all times a skier must be in control of
his/her speed. Always adapt your skiing to
your personal ability level. You must be
able to stop turn and brake at any time.
RULE 3
THE DOWNHILL
SKIER HAS THE
RIGHT OF WAY
A skier coming from
above must take a
direction which
assures the safety of the skier below.
RULE 4
OVERTAKING; It is permitted to
overtake another skier going up or down to
the right or left, but always leave enough
margin for the overtaken skier to make
his/her turns.
RULE 5
DUTIES OF A SKIER CROSSING THE
COURSE
A skier wishing to enter a course or pass a
teaching ground must look up and down to
make sure that this can be done without
danger to himself/herself or others. The
same applies to starting again after a stop
on the course.
RULE 6
STOPPING ON THE COURSE;
If not absolutely
necessary, a skier
must avoid a stop
on the course
especially in narrow
passage where
visibility is
restricted.
In the case of a fall a
skier
must leave the course as soon as possible.
RULE 7
CLIMBING;
A climbing skier must keep to the side of
the course. In bad visibility keep off the
course entirely.
RULE 8
RESPECT FOR SIGNS;
A skier must know and respect the signs
on a ski field.
RULE 9
ACCIDENTS
At accidents all skiers are duty bound to
help.
RULE 10
IDENTIFICATION
Everybody, witnesses, whether responsible
or not, present at an accident, must
establish their identity.
Cause
• It was created by subduction of the Pacific Plate below the
• The Earth’s crust is stretched and thinned in the entire Taupo
• It is believed to have a number of very small magma bodies 1-5km
below the crater.
Eruptive material
• Tephra ranging in size from dust
(ash fall) to bombs and blocks, is
produced in every eruption
• Lava flows occur from the vent
(though none in historical times); lava
domes in the vent (1945) and fire
fountaining (sprays of liquid lava)
have been witnessed.
• Pyroclastic flows are uncommon in Ruapehu’s history with none in
historic times.
• Usually the crater lake causes magma to cool and fragment (explode)
quickly and violently leading to fine ash eruptions.
Monitoring
• 2 web cameras, 10 seismographs and 6 microphones detect volcanic
explosions, and 9
continuous GPS stations
record ground
deformation. Water and
gas monitoring of the
crater lake and airborne
gas monitoring is also
carried out regularly.
Volcano Fact Sheet
Mount Ruapehu
Description
• Ruapehu is the
largest active volcano
in NZ and is located at
the southern end of
the Taupo Volcanic
Zone in Tongariro
National Park.
•At 2797m high, it is the highest peak in the North Island.
• It has the North Island’s only glaciers.
• 3 summit craters have been active in the last 10,000 years, and the
currently active vent is beneath the crater lake of South Crater.
• It is surrounded by a ring plain of volcanic material from lahars and
landslides.
• Mt Ruapehu is a stratovolcano (also called a composite cone) - it is
made up of alternating layers of ash and lava flow.
Maori Name
• Ruapehu means 'pit of noise' or exploding pit'.
Features
• It has several peaks and a summit plateau.
• The warm, acidic crater lake is fed by snow melt.
• There are two large commercial ski fields, Whakapapa and Turoa.
Type
• It is a stratovolcano, (also called composite cone volcano)
• It is built up by a succession of layers andesite lava and ash deposits.
The Snow Responsibility Code
1. Stay in control at all times.
Know your ability, start easy, be able to stop and avoid other
people.
2. People below you have the right of way.
The skier or boarder down hill of you has the right of way, also
look above when entering a trail.
3. Obey all ski area signage.
Signs are there for your safety, keep out of closed areas.
4. Look before you leap.
Scope jumps first, ensure the area is clear of others, and use
a spotter on blind jumps.
5. Stop where you can be seen.
When stopping, try to move to the side of the trail and where
you can be seen from above.
6. Don’t lose what you use.
Equipment must be secured while walking or stashing.
7. Stay on scene.
If you are involved in, or witness, and accident, remain at the
scene and identify yourself to the Ski Patrol.
8. Respect gets respect.
From the lift line, to the slopes and through the park.
