The Snow Base is Building Up

We have had snow overnight at both Whakapapa and Turoa Ski Areas and good bases are building! At Turoa there was more snow on the road than the ski field, which does happen some times! We are snowmaking currently and it is also snowing. At Whakapapa we received 15 cms at the top of the Express.

We have staff rostered are are ready to go and we will update the snow report at

About Ohakune Accommodation - OhakuneCourt Motel

Ohakune is ideally situated between the Tongariro and Whanganui River National Parks and lies at the foot of Mt Ruapehu - well known for winter skiing on the Whakapapa and Turoa ski fields. However during the summer and autumn months the mountain and the National Parks become a paradise for hikers - mountain bikers - fisherman - and those who wish to canoe the famous Whanganui River. The area also has 3 fine 18 hole golf course and is only an hours drive from Lake Taupo with arguably the best trout fishing in New Zealand.
