Our members are pioneers of skiing in New Zealand. Our club is the nation’s oldest and was one of the earliest in the world when it was founded in 1913.

First tracks really are right here. With two lodges at 1,800 metres, we are the only club with true ski-in ski-out buildings on Whakapapa Ski Field. During the ski season, members enjoy full cooked and continental breakfasts provided by our live-in chefs, through to hearty evening meals beside roaring fires.

Two more lodges in Whakapapa Village and Ohakune are well located as off-mountain bases, and for exploring Tongariro National Park during the warmer months.

Our club has a family-friendly atmosphere. We have been welcoming families, including fifth-generation members, to club life on Mount Ruapehu for more than 100 years.

We look forward to sharing our club with you.
