For those of you who would like to experience the wonderfully refurbished Ruapehu Lodge and enjoy Whakapapa  we have put together an exciting week trip and weekend activities programme.

But that doesn’t mean to say you have to go on these organised trips.  There are plenty of other opportunities to use the lodge throughout the winter season for skiing, climbing, ski touring or just relaxing.  Just pick a time, contact the booking officer (details listed below) then come on up.

If you are new to the Lodge, we recommend you use the lodge with a group of club members. Members use the lodge most weekends and on many weeks during winter. 

A quick note regarding bookings.  Once you have worked out when you want to stay it would be much appreciated if you could email to tell me the nights you want to book.  The booking system is run on a nightly basis so telling me you “…want to come for the week…”  still has me guessing.  Phone bookings are fine but with the number of booking I am starting to receive it makes it easier if it is all recorded in an email.  To book the lodge contact the Booking Officer, Sheldon (Shelly) Bruce. Bookings can be made in the following ways:

By email to Ruapehubookings@hvtc.org.nz at least 24 hours prior to the desired date, or by phone to 04 586 8961 and leave a message with booking details if there is no reply. Make the most of this unique facility.  Here’s hoping for a great winter season at Mount Ruapehu.
