Mt Ruapehu: Ski either Whakapapa or Turoa ski field
Did you know that the biggest ski field in New Zealand is not located on the South Island but smack bang in the heart of the North Island?
Mt Ruapehu in Tongariro National Park is home to two commercial ski fields, Turoa and Whakapapa. Together, they make up a massive skiing area that’ fun for both beginners and advanced skiers and snowboarders.
Whakapapa has a fantastic beginners area: Happy Valley is perfect for your first swings. Or for your first run after a longer skiing break to make sure you still got it. Overall, both Mt Ruapehu ski fields offer over 1000ha of rideable area and 6 chair lifts, 3 T-bars, 2 platter lifts and 5 conveyor belts. The newest addition to Whakapapa is Sky Waka, the gondola that takes skiers and sightseers to 2020m.
Your ski pass is valid for both Whakapapa and Turoa ski fields. The best way to decide which side of the mountain is better to ride is to check out the webcams on the day and have a look at the weather forecast.
