    Early bird season pass deal for 2020 for Mt Ruapehu ski fields are now on sale, eg $449 for an adult season pass.

    Bear in mind these ski fields operate very differently to Aus resorts, expect closure or limited lifts 30-50 percent of the time due to weather. They open later coz need snow to cover the rocks but stay open later in spring too due to 3m snow pack. Scenery is spectacular when you can see it. Best to plan for a cruisy spring trip and be prepared to wait out some bad weather.

    Well we've been here 12 days now, two full days skiing, several aborted half days and one single sunny afternoon, all due to crap weather. Somewhat unusually consistently crap by local standards i gather talking to the locals, but i wouldn't go for a week day only pass coz Sat or Sun might be the two skiable days of the week.
