Experience the largest maunga (mountain) on the North Island this winter.
Weather permitting, winter sightseeing is available at Whakapapa on the Sky Waka Gondola. Suitable for all ages and perfect for families, it is a great way to get a taste of the alpine environment if you are not a skier or snowboarder, and enjoy snow play within a designated fenced area.
Note: to exit onto the slopes you must have purchased a valid Anytime or Weekday day pass, Season Pass or Life Pass.
First ride up from the base area is at 10 am, the last ride up is at 3:30 pm and the last ride down is at 4 pm.
Closed footwear is mandatory. Warm and waterproof clothing is recommended. Please check the snow report for sightseeing status.
While you're here, enjoy a coffee, a meal or a drink at one of our eateries.
