Skiing, Snowboarding & Sledging — Ski Whakapapa and Turoa

Whakapapa and Turoa are two of New Zealand’s largest and most popular ski areas. A mix of natural half-pipes, narrow chutes, and wide open flanks thrill beginners and experts, skiers and snowboarders alike. Renown for its fresh spring snow, Mt. Ruapehu also has New Zealand’s only lift-accessed glacier skiing.
