Winter Buster is a unique event. Unique because it is held under the biggest North Island mountain, in the middle of winter. Unique because is encompasses guided and marked trail riding. A quad and side by side event that celebrates the diverse climate of the Central Plateau in true winter style.

Saturday: Spend the day on a marked course in the desert where you set you own pace and drive until you have had enough.

Sunday: A guided safari day, where we expore the features and some of the histry of the 163,000 acres of the Waiouru military training area. We split into at least 4 groups so it is easy to find a group that goes your pace and comfort level.
