Turoa's ski field and ski lift

In the winter season, we offer Mt Ruapehu accommodation packages that let you enjoy the ski fields. The Mountain Road to Turoa is a short ten minute drive away. At Turoa, you can learn the basics of skiing and snowboarding but it also provides many challenges for intermediate and advanced skiers.

Experience the magic of the snow together and come back to the lodge for a mulled wine, a roaring fire, and the latest test match on the big screen TV in the guest lounge.
