Mt Ruapehu re-opens after eruption
Thu 27 September 07
Whakapapa and Turoa in New Zealand have reopened today after the volcanic eruption the other evening. There was no damage to the ski area but its been advised not to go off-piste on the upper mountain
There's been no more seismic activity overnight the official website reports but the police have recommended that you don't head off-piste on the upper part of the mountain until they've given the all clear as there could still be further eruptions.
At Whakapapa the trails serviced by the Far West T-bar include the most at-risk potential lahar paths. Following Tuesday's volcanic activity there is a heightened possibility of further smaller events for the next 4 days. During this period the Far West T will not operate.
We'll try and get hold of some photos of the flow, but visit www.mtruapehu.com for more details.
