That's it for Whakapapa for winter 2014. In a shrewd marketing move, or bowing to pressure from the public , RAL have announced that 2014 season pass holders now do not need to pay extra to ski in the extended spring season. Also, if you do no have a 2014 season pass but want to purchase a 2015 pass before Oct 31st you can also ski for free at Turoa until Snovember 9th.

Remember that Ruapehu rules at this time of year!  Whether you are looking forward to a long hot summer or planning a Northern Hemisphere adventure have a blast and we look forward to regularly updating you in 2015. In the mean time if NZ related snow news comes to hand we will let you know about the updates through Facebook.

That's pretty much it for the New Zealand 2014 snow sports events calendar. We will be loading 2015 dates as soon as they come to hand.  EVENT ORGANISERS: If we don't know about your event we can't promote it. Use CONTACT US  (at the bottom right of this page) to let us know.

    "After heavy rain at lake level early this morning I thought it best to check what access road conditions would be like for our construction team. At dawn I was met with 12cm new snow around the car parks and base area."
