Wild open spaces, fantastic people, and relaxed vibes.
Welcome to Tūkino - a club-operated, lesser-known ski field located on the eastern slopes of Mt Ruapehu at Tongariro National Park. Tūkino ski field will be opening on the 16th of July, the second week of the schoo holidays! Accesse to Tūkino is off the Desert Rd, between Waiouru and Turangi, via a 4WD vehicle.
For those that don’t drive a 4WD vehicle, there will be a Shuttle Service running between the 2WD Car Park (Base Camp) and the Tūkino Ski Field during the 2022 season. This service will be operating WEEKENDS ONLY.
With 170 hectares of ski area, over 300m of vertical drop, and slopes sheltered from the prevailing Westerly winds, Tūkino is a welcoming place with friendly crew, camaraderie and without the crowds. Tūkino is a club ski field, operated and maintained by dedicated club members –all for the love of snow sports.
