Get around


  • Crater Lake


  • Ski
  • Sightseeing



As the area is a national park there are few businesses that sell food in the area.

Outside the ski season, bring your own food.



There are several ski lodges on the mountain as well as accommodation around the mountain at places such as National Park, Ohakune Turangi and Waiouru.

The Department of Conservation operates a number of back country huts in the area.
