Members and their guests can stay at Takapuna Ski Club. Discover what an amazing experience it is, then join the club to become a member and book in.
Takapuna Ski Club is the ultimate family friendly getaway. It is a place where kids can be kids, while adults relax with like-minded people and a drink after a good day on the slopes.
Members enjoy fantastic rates for accommodation that are second to none; The nearest commercial accommodation is 7 kilometres back down the hill!
Perhaps the best thing about staying at the club is being right on the slopes of mighty Mount Ruapehu itself. An active volcano of 2797 metres, in the centre of the North Island, Mt Ruapehu offers views across much of the North Island. The massiveness of the mountain makes it majestic.
Many scenes from Lord of The Rings were filmed on and around Mt Ruapehu, and "Mordor" (Mt Ngauruhoe) is Mt Ruapehu's neighbour.
The lodge leader assigns a daily duty to everyone staying at the club. This keeps costs down, helps members get to know each other and gives children responsibility. Duties are allocated with ability and age in mind.
