About Tukino

Discover the eastern slopes of Mt. Ruapehu and have a unique skiing and boarding experience on a friendly club operated skifield. Tukino Ski Resort offers you the chance to avoid the crowds of Whakapapa or Turoa.
Nestled on the eastern slopes of Mt Ruapehu in New Zealand’s North Island, Tukino Ski Resort offers the rare combination of adventure and lack of crowds, coupled with the friendliness and camaraderie that’s only found on club-operated fields. Tukino is a club ski field, operated and maintained by club members.

This is what skiing used to be like – before hectic lifestyles and commercial interests took over! Sit back in front of a log fire in the Tukino Cafe and enjoy the scenery and camaraderie of old friends and new.
