Ski Area Info

Welcome to Mt Ruapehu.

Experience New Zealand's TWO largest ski areas - with just one lift pass

Mt Ruapehu - Whakapapa and Turoa Ski Areas - 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.

Otherwise relax in our cafes and enjoy the great food and coffee, or take a chairlift ride for elevated views across the Central North Island and beyond.
