Mt Ruapehu - Whakapapa Terrain

Mt Ruapehu has something for everyone: world class learner facilities, terrain parks, an action-packed events schedule, and the best spring skiing in New Zealand. Both ski areas have fully sealed access roads and on-mountain facilities include a full rental service & workshop, licensed cafes, Vertical shops, and a fully equipped Accident & Medical Centre. If you’re not a skier or snowboarder, you can play in designated sliding areas or take a sightseeing ride to New Zealand’s highest café. On a good day the hike to Mt Ruapehu's Crater Lake is well worth it for views and for the 1000m vertical ride back down. Guided backcountry trips and a free Mountain Hosting programme operate throughout the winter, taking you to the best snow. The terrain at both ski areas is varied and vast, making them suitable for all ability levels and you can access both ski areas with one lift pass.
