Ruapehu Skiing and Snowboarding

Mt Ruapehu is home to New Zealand's largest ski areas, Turoa and Whakapapa, and the smaller club field of Tukino.

Whakapapa sits on the mountain's northwestern slopes and is known for its outstanding beginner area, Happy Valley. On the southwestern slopes, Turoa offers the most awesome natural skiing and snowboarding terrain New Zealand has available.

Huge snow-filled basins, steep chutes, drop-offs and secret powder stashes compliment the fantastic learners facilities, ski and snowboard school, retail stores and cafes. Terrain Parks are custom built for snowboarders and free skiers of all abilities.

Nestled on the eastern slopes of Mt Ruapehu and just off the Desert Road, friendly Tukino lacks crowds but not adventure. Ski to your door with accommodation located on site or try cat skiiing with over 300 vetical metres of untracked snow per run.

Mt Ruapehu has the best spring skiing, typically staying open until late October or early November making it New Zealand's longest running ski season.
