We really are lucky with our location - there is so much to do just a short drive from our accommodation in Turangi. One of the big things to do in Winter is of course skiing.
Mt. Ruapehu is a huge mountain - a volcano actually - with 2 incredible ski fields - Whakapapa and Turoa. The ski season is generally from late June to late October depending on snow and weather conditions.

Both resorts have a great selection of runs, fast lifts, and excellent facilities. As with all international resorts you'll find quality ski and snowboard lessons, children's programs, rentals and more.
To get a real feel for the mountain, we encourage you to take a look at the Mt Ruapehu website. And if you're planning a trip to ski this Winter, we'd love to host you at our accommodation in Turangi. You can see our accommodation options here, or contact us directly.
