 Looking to get away from a dull, wet weekend in Auckland and have some fun? We know how! Sit back and relax and let us transport you down to Mt. Ruapehu. Enjoy a warm, friendly, relaxed stay in your temperature controlled rooms at Pipers Lodge in National Park. Allow us to sort out your breakfasts and your Saturday night dinner, and shuttle you up and down from the ski fields (Whakapapa or Turoa) each day.

And, after a gratifying day of riding, don't let the fun stop there! Relax in a hot tub, play some table tennis or pool or just soak up the heat from the fireplace, all provided at your lodge.
