“Turoa Ski Area lies on the southwestern slopes of Mount Ruapehu. It has the longest vertical descent of any ski area in Australasia and also boasts New Zealand’s highest chairlift - the "Highnoon Express".”

Beginner The Alpine Meadow at the base of Turoa Ski Area is a wonderful little beginners' area. It has a massive 120m long carpet lift, which is like a conveyer belt over the snow and super easy to use.

The Alpine Meadow is right next to the Alpine Chalet where you'll find good coffee, meals, snacks and a well-deserved cold beer after you're done on the slopes. For those who aren't ready for skiing or snowboarding, there's a sledding slope and a free public snow play area too!

When you're ready to progress, a short ride up the Park Lane chairlift takes you to a slightly steeper beginner area, the Wintergarden, where you can develop your new skills and enjoy a break at the rustic Snowflake Burger Bar.

Intermediate

The intermediate terrain at Turoa is mostly wide and smooth, making it a perfect progression from the beginner runs. There are 12 groomed intermediate runs, all of which are nice and long and many of them link to one another so you can enjoy excellent intermediate skiing and riding all the way from the top of Australasia's highest lift to the base area.

Advanced

With 25 black and black diamond runs and two spectacular lift-accessed backcountry areas you'll find a massive variety of terrain as an advanced skier/rider at Turoa. Enjoy the natural half-pipes and chutes through the Organ Pipes and the Solitude backcountry area or the amazing wide sweeping terrain of the Triangle and the Glacier backcountry area. If you're into steeps Hamilton's Face is for you and the budding big mountain skier will find an ever-changing range of natural terrain features to play on.
