Ngauruhoe Ski Club

Bruce Rd

Active both in winter and in the non-snow seasons, the Ngauruhoe Ski Club membership is a social one. With a mix of families, younger singles and the keen old guard, Nguaruhoe Ski Club has something to offer skiers of any age group and ability.

The Clubs premier on-mountain accommodation in the Iwikau Village, the NSC Whakapapa lodge is located in the Iwikau Village high on the slopes of Mt Ruapehu, just 150m south west from the carpark at the top of the Bruce Road. Built on the site of the Clubs original building (which was burnt down by fire in 1987), it has won an architectural award for the excellence of its design. With 32 beds, impressive exposed beams, natural timber cladding, extensive stonework, and a comfortable interior, this is one of the most sought after places to stay on the mountain.

Whilst in residence at one of the two modern and comfortable lodges, every member is assigned a housekeeping duty to keep the club running smoothly and share the workload. 

Cooking and food preparation is managed by your wonderful cooks who re resident at both lodges from early July until the end of October.

Membership is by invitation from a current senior member, seconded by another senior member, and requires the invitee(s) to complete work parties over the summer months. Invitees must be 18 years or over to qualify for senior membership, and there are also Family, Junior and Veteran membership categories. Ngauruhoe is a diverse club for keen skiers and snowboarders, and we welcome enquiries from anyone interested in becoming a member of an active and social ski club.
