About Us

We love skiing and snowboarding. We love Whakapapa, and we love Mount Ruapehu.  The club has been around since 1948 and exists solely for the purpose of getting its members onto the mighty Ruapehu to do their stuff.

When you stay in the Whanganui Hut, you are part of our whanau. Duties are rostered and shared to help with the day-to-day running of the lodge. Everyone pitches in and helps out. We look out for each other and make sure everyone is happy.

Photo Gallery

Being situated high up on Mt. Ruapehu provides pretty epic views. Our photo gallery has all the stunning photos we use as backgrounds in our website.

The Hut Facilities

Check out our facilities if you want to get a better sense of what's available at the hut. We've got everything you need, plenty of food, and lots of space.

The Club Committee

See who the fabulous folk are who make it all happen. Tireless champions, or just dead keen to make sure the lights are kept on for the bluebird weekends!
