Ruapehu Press - - Your Local News -

Huge suc­cess of­ten brings with it a few prob­lems and that seems to be the case around the moun­tain this week­end.

The big dump­ing of snow may have con­fined peo­ple to their own lit­tle part of the world in the lat­ter part of last week, but by Satur­day things were go­ing pretty crazy.

Skiers flocked to the ski­fields to make the most of the fresh pow­der and, com­bined with snow and ice left be­hind by the storm, cre­ated a few is­sues on the roads.

Hope­fully all of these is­sues can be re­solved. The Park n Ride ser­vice does seem like a good so­lu­tion to the traf­fic prob­lems, on what can be quite tricky roads at this time of the year.

We want the vis­i­tors but we need to be able to han­dle the num­bers too.

Also, a big con­grat­u­la­tions to all the emer­gency ser­vices, con­trac­tors, coun­cil staff and the NZ Army for the big ef­fort they put in to keep every­one tick­ing through the big storm.

Some is­sues like the stormwa­ter in Raetihi will need to be looked at but most is­sues seemed to get re­solved.
