Skiing on Whakapapa  Destination Great Lake Taupo

North Island Ski Areas

Plan your New Zealand skiing holiday with our North Island ski and accommodation listings, local weather reports, ski lift and rental prices.

Mt Ruapehu in the Ruapehu Region is the North Island's premier skiing destination. An active volcano, Mt Ruapehu is home to both Whakapapa and Turoa - the North Island's only commercial ski areas, offering an expanse of varied terrain - as well as the smaller club area of Tukino, located on the mountain's eastern side.

Great Lake Taupo, only 60 minutes from Whakapapa and Turoa, located in centre of the North Island also makes for an ideal destination to stay and participate in some off Piste activities.  

On the western side of the North Island, perched on Mt Taranaki, Stratford Mountain Club provides a different experience entirely, with fewer people and the community feel of a small club operation.
