PURE TŪROA

AUTHENTIC ALPINE ADVENTURE

SKI & RIDE TŪROA

MT. RuAPEHU, NEW ZEALAND

Tūroa Ski Field, nestled in the heart of the North Island's rugged terrain in New Zealand, stands as a beacon for winter sports enthusiasts seeking adventure, excitement, and natural beauty. With its commanding presence as New Zealand's highest lifted point, Tūroa offers an unparalleled skiing and snowboarding experience.

 

Mighty in stature, wide-open in feel. Featuring New Zealand’s highest lifted point and biggest vertical descent. Tūroa loyalists rejoice in a landscape that resembles frozen waves, lasting well into the Spring. Tūroa’s slopestyle parks offer world class terrain and features, with a clear path of progression.

Terrain is formed by solidified lava, with snow settling from June through to October, filling in natural gullies and rocky crevasses. Long, gentle slopes, and premier beginner facilities entice first timers to the maunga (mountain), affording them space to get the hang of turning and stopping at their own pace. More advanced skiers and riders rejoice in accessible free ride terrain, with natural bowls, and wind lips, with a vast number of cliffs and shoots.

What sets Tūroa apart is its unique conditions and natural beauty. Skiers and snowboarders can carve their way through the clouds, past remnants of old crater rims, and over ancient lava flows, creating memories that last a lifetime. The ski field's location atop the North Island's peak exposes it to the elements, adding a sense of drama and magic to the slopes. From crisp, bluebird days to soft "spring corn," Tūroa offers an array of conditions to suit every preference.

About

THE MISSION

Our mission is to ensure a culturally aligned, environmentally sustainable and commercially viable Tūroa for years to come. In collaboration with iwi and our local community, we aspire to take Tūroa to a new level of experience for all. We have immense respect for the maunga and the Tongariro National Park and how important it is to all New Zealanders. The goal is to preserve economic prosperity for our local communities, provide new jobs, develop year-round opportunities and continue to open pathways for our tamariki through their school years and into snow sports and alpine tourism careers.
