About the event
Winter Buster is a unique event. Unique because it’s held in the shadow of the biggest North Island mountain in the middle of winter. Unique because it encompasses guided riding and marked trail riding. A quad bike and side by side event that celebrates the diverse climate of the central plateau in true winter style. Saturday is guided safari day where we explore the features and some of the history of the 63,000 hectares of the Waiouru military training area. Sunday spend the day on a marked course in the training area on the Eastern side of SH1 or alternatively join a group to continue the guided trails. This ride is deliberately placed in mid-winter to give you a chance to drive in real winter conditions. It is also placed at a time when there are few other events or distractions. Event includes:

  • 2-day entry fee includes accommodation in the Barracks at Waiouru and all meals during your stay.
  • 1-day fee is to ride on that day only and does not include accommodation or meals. You can nominate 1- or 2-days in this registration.
  • All registrations must be completed on our website. There will be no on the day registrations.
  • We will send you your registration pack approx 2 weeks before the event.

Two day registration complete with accommodation and food: driver $370, passenger $180. One day registration self catering, camping or off site: driver $135 per day, passenger $75 per day.

I was on Winter Buster and it was amazing thanks to your team. Can't thank you guys enough. I had a guy Aaron Carr come from Australia to go on it with me. He is now buying a UTV and leaving it in New Zealand so he can go to these events! We will be there in December, can't wait ~ Wayne Yearbury.
