Ive been boarding turoa pronounced "tu ro a" for the last 4 years now and it is the largest field in the north island of nz a new 6 seater high speed chair lift went end of 07 that opens up a lot more advanced terain Due to its high terrain the snow doesnt stay power over night it gets a thin layer of crust on the surface but by 10-11 thats all broken up and you got some sweet boarding again if the weather turns bad dont worry Ohakune pronounced "oh ar ku knee" a small snow town has a few pubs and clubs to relax in and if its wind thats closed the field on the other side of the mt is Whakapapa pronounced "fa ka par pa" (no im not yanking your chain its a maori name) is just around the corner and can be open while the other side is closed in the north island turoa and Whakapapa are the 2 best fields feilds are open from end june - october
