We're excited to see the Department of Conservation has today announced the public notification of our concession application to operate the Tūroa ski area.
A huge amount of mahi has been done over the last few months to arrive at this important milestone. We're very grateful for the support and assistance we've had from local iwi, our community and our expert environmental consultants and advisors. We’re very appreciative of the more than 80 local businesses that have shown their written support for Pure Tūroa and we look forward to working with them next year.
It's been a complex process and we've learnt a lot. We're confident our application embodies our very strong environmental and cultural aspirations for Tūroa moving towards a reduced footprint, zero waste and the removal of redundant structures. We look forward to a positive outcome to the application process towards the end of March 2024, ensuring snow sports will continue at Tūroa next year.
We’ll keep you posted here as the concession application progresses.
