Tukino Ski Field, Mount Ruapehu

Tukino Ski Field is located on the eastern slopes of Mount Ruapehu. It is a relatively sheltered area in the lee of the prevailing westerly winds. Although it’s a club-operated field it is open to the public and operates just like a small commercial field.

Tukino Ski Field is a great place to visit if you want a quiet day on the snow away from the crowds, or if you are looking for a different kind of adventure and a new place to explore. It’s also a great place to base yourself if you want to do some ski touring in the area, with access to the Mangatoetoenui and Whangaehu Glaciers.

Tukino is also popular with school groups as it has plenty of space and on-snow accommodation with easy access to the ski area.
