Mt Ruapehu's
Development plan


Update: 21 February 2022

  • While we remain committed to finding the best solution to a long-term sustainable future for Tūroa, our most immediate concern is the safety and the useful life of the Tūroa lifts. The RAL Board have made the decision to place the current Tūroa development plan on hold, and we will now seek advice on alternative approaches, including the potential to extend the life of the existing lifts.


See what's planned for coming years at Whakapapa, including info on proposed facility upgrades for lifts, terrain, cafes and services.

Our key strategies for Whakapapa are to operate 12 months of the year and improved the guest experience.
