Raetihi – Your Gateway to Ruapehu
If you’re up for some skiing or snow-boarding, Raetihi is a convenient base for a mountain adventure on some of New Zealand’s best ski slopes. It’s an easy 45 minute drive to Whakapapa skifield, and Turoa is even closer at only 30 minutes.
Wake up in the morning, check the snow-report and make your decision about which side you’ll ski or ride today! If you feel like a change, you can even head around to Tukino for some nutcracking ropetow fun.
