Mt Ruapehu New Zealand in winter

Rising head and shoulders above the Central North Island, Turoa boasts the largest vertical drop in Australasia; no wonder they call Turoa "The Giant." The south facing slope gets plenty of dry powder during the season making Turoa a perfect alpine playground for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities.

Beginners have an exclusive learning that is separate from the main ski area. The Alpine Meadow, located at the base, is a great place for beginners to learn.

Intermediate skiers and riders will find excellent groomed terrain via Australasia’s highest chairlift. Turoa Ski Area offers advanced skiers and snowboarders with lift accessed backcountry terrain, natural half-pipes, and chutes. Expert riders should check out Hamilton’s Face for great steep, ever-changing terrain, with multiple features to explore.
