NZAC members ski at TASC member rates

NZAC members just need to present their active membership cards at the ticket office to receive Tukino Alpine Ski Club member rates. Rates information.

Nestled on the eastern slopes of Mt Ruapehu in New Zealand’s North Island, Tukino Skifield 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.

The Tukino Skifield is open to the public and visitors are most welcome to visit Tukino to ski, board or just play around in the snow.

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 our Tukino Cafe and enjoy the scenery and camaraderie of others in our little spot of paradise at Tukino.
