Mt Ruapehu Whakapapa & Turoa Ski Areas offer the most awesome natural skiing and snowboarding terrain in the country; huge snow filled basins, lift-accessed backcountry, steep chutes, drop-offs and secret powder stashes.
Mt Ruapehu offers something for everyone: Fantastic learners’ facilities, terrain parks for snowboarders and free-skiers of all abilities and exceptional spring skiing and riding.
For your little ones in tow, there’s a free toboganning area. On a good day the hike to Mt Ruapehu’s Crater Lake is well worth it for the 1,000m vertical ride back down.
Otherwise relax in our cafés and take a chairlift ride for elevated views across the Central North Island and beyond.
