Can you tell me please which day would be the best to climb MT Egmont/Taranaki between this coming Saturday (1st of Sept) and Tuesday the 4th?
(editor replies: Barnabas, Saturday is much much better forecast than Tuesday. If you can wait, there should be stable weather around 4th September)

Hi a question, is possible climb this Monday 25 of June?
Editor replies: Edison, this would be a very bad day with blizzard conditions and snow to low elevations (below 1000m). I strongly urge you to delay until Wednesday at the soonest and to be prepared for alpine conditions and strong winds. A winter ascent of Mt Taranaki is a serious proposition.
