Tauwira Ski Club owns two properties in the Tongariro National Park region. Tongariro was the first park to be inscribed in the
World Heritage list in 1993.
The mountains at the heart of the park have cultural and religious significance for the Maori people and symbolise the spiritual links between this community and its environment. The park has active and extinct volcanoes, a diverse range of ecosystems and some spectacular landscapes.
The club's facilities on Whakapapa ski field and in Ohakune are available year round for members to use, and provide a wonderful base from which to explore this extraordinary part of New Zealand.
Naturally the winter months see the highest use of the facilities amongst club members, however this region is a haven from which to explore the inspiring and exhiliarating landscape year round. From the Tongariro Alpine crossing, the 'Bridge to Nowhere', and National Cycle Trails - walking, trekking and mountain biking adventures abound.
