This is the most fundamental aspect of playing on the snow anywhere in the world. Similar to the ‘road code’ for driving your car, these are the ‘rules’ and everyone has a better day if we all follow these simple laws of the slopes. Failure to follow the Mt Ruapehu Code of Conduct could result in consequences ranging from an advisory offence up to a two week loss of pass. So take it easy out there.
|Please respect all ropes, signage and ski area boundary markers. All may indicate possible dangers that may not be readily apparent. In particular, the snow making water reservoirs on both mountains are roped off from public access, clearly signed as hazardous areas and should be avoided.|
Otherwise known as the ‘Roadcode for the slopes’, these are the rules to play by. The Mt Ruapehu team will be monitoring customer behaviour so that everyone has the best possible experience while on the snow.
