Whanganui Ski and Snowboard Club

Join us on the Mountain!

Book your Stay or Join the club today


We are a non-profit organisation run by club members. The club exists solely for the purpose of enabling those who have a passion for skiing and snowboarding to stay at the Whanganui Hut.


We enjoy a ‘big family’ vibe at the Hut. We all take turns to cook dinner and do the cleaning (including kids). We have dinner together around a long table. At the end of the day you’ll find us sitting around the fire, laughing at each other’s wipeouts, and enjoying each other’s company.


We stay at the highest private residence in New Zealand (1792m). The Whanganui Hut is located right smack in the middle of Whakapapa ski-field. Ski-out, ski-in, enjoy!


If you’re interested in joining the club, staying at the hut, or just want a bit more information, feel free to send us a message.

Booking Officer

Bill is the guy that makes it all happen. He does an incredible job as the booking officer and orders all the food & supplies to keep us fed.

“There’s nothing quite like sitting around the club at the end of the day, laughing at huge wipeouts and epic runs…and watching the most glorious sunset in the world gently tuck Mount Ngauruhoe up for the night.”
