Skiing at Mt Ruapehu !
Experience New Zealand's TWO largest ski areas, Whakapapa and Turoa, unique ski fields in New Zealand!
Mt Ruapehu is home to 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 freeskiers of all abilities, and the best spring skiing and riding in New Zealand. For the littlies (and big ones too!) in the family come play in the snow or enjoy the free tobogganing area, a kid's centre (Turoa only) and beginner packages.
With Mt Ruapehu conveniently located right in the central North Island of New Zealand, approximately half way between Auckland and Wellington, it is easy to get here and there are many ways of making the journey.
