New Zealand Alpine Team
The New Zealand Alpine Team is an initiative of the Expedition Climbers Club that represents a new concept for climbing in this country. It is born of a desire to support and encourage aspiring young Kiwi alpinists looking to improve their mountain skills. Some of New Zealand's best alpine climbers have volunteered their time to mentor a future generation of alpinists. In doing so, we are hoping to help a group of young climbers to learn valuable skills and knowledge that might have otherwise taken them many more years to acquire.
With a desire to support and encourage aspiring young Kiwi alpinists, the New Zealand Alpine team is made up of highly skilled alpinists as mentors, mentored climbers and aspiring mentor climbers.

"My new favourite way to finish a big day in the hills. A quick and tasty meal with a great combination of full flavour and a touch of spice. It makes for an easy way to replace all of the energy you have just burned while also helping to set you up for any challenge that tomorrow might bring!" - Ben Dare
"Alpine starts in the mountains are always tough, especially when camping in sub-zero temperatures. The mixed berry breakfast makes it easy to get fuelled up for a hard day's climbing and the high-fat content from nuts and coconut keeps me going for hours after leaving the bivvy." - Alastair McDowell
"The rich sauce and tasty meatballs in the Moroccan Lamb is such a treat when tucking in after a long day on the wall, and it has everything needed for a speedy recovery." - Rose Pearson
"It is always nice to sit down at the end of a long day of climbing, and eat a tasty, nutritious meal to re-fuel our bodies"
