The July School Holidays are in full swing so its time embrace winter and hit the slopes!!

Why not treat the kids to an experience they’ll never forget, with school holiday programmes and fun activities at Tūroa and Whakapapa. The kids are sure to be kept busy and will make some amazing memories during these holidays up at Mt Ruapehu.

The Holiday Crew Programme at both Tūroa and Whakapapa is the perfect way to get the kids active and on the mountain these holidays, with 5 days of lessons, a dedicated instructor and crew of snow buddies. It makes for an awesome time on the slopes for Skiers aged 4-17 & Riders 6-17 of all abilities.

A yummy lunch is also provided throughout the week, so you don’t have to worry about packing the kids lunches. Joining the Holiday Crew also gives the kids lift line priority all week, meaning they get the most out of their lesson time and can get in as many laps as possible.
