Other facilities

The Little Mountain Café offers coffee and snacks and there is a Ski Patrol patrolling the area daily.

A new Ski Rental, located next to the ticket office, is available on the mountain at Tukino. A range of skis, boots and poles is available to fit from ages 5+ (height dependant). Unfortunately there are no snowboards available for hire at Tukino, nor is clothing available to hire, so it is important that you dress yourself appropriately for the Mount Ruapehu weather conditions.

It is recommended that you pre-book your rental equipment using the Rental Booking Form to save time when you arrive at Tukino. That way your skis will be ready for you when you arrive.
