Get excited, people, we’ve found the best lift ticket deal going in New Zealand this year. Ski or snowboard at New Zealand’s largest ski area, Mt Ruapehu, and every day you hit the Whakapapa or Turoa slopes you’ll get a lift ticket for the hottest ski resort going in Canada right now, Panorama Mountain Resort.
Yes, you read that right. But that’s not all. You’ll also get a complimentary Monster X ride at Panorama out to the cat accessed Monster terrain and lunch at Pinnacles at Mt Ruapehu.
We know, right? A-maz-ing.
Why you’ll love Mt Ruapehu
You’ll impress your mates when you tell them you’ve been skiing on an active volcano called Mt Ruapehu on New Zealand’s North Island. If that’s not enough then know you’ll have access to both Turoa and Whakapapa on either side of the volcano on the one lift pass.
Ride the new gondola at Whakapapa, the 1.8km Sky Waka and experience 550 hectares of epic terrain features from rolling groomed slopes to steep chutes with views out to Mt Doom in Lord of the Rings.
Hit up Turoa on the Ohakune village side of the mountain and enjoy the most vertical in Australasia – 722 metres of glacial style skiing fun. Then sit back with an après beer in the cute as a button ski town of Ohakune (the carrot capital of New Zealand) where locals mingle with skiers and boarders.
Make sure you grab a famous chocolate eclair from Johnny Nation on the way up or down the mountain and a selfie with the giant carrot at the entrance to town.
Why you’ll love Panorama
The name says it all, Panorama Mountain Resort boasts phenomenal sweeping mountain vistas deep in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Add a ski in ski out village, 2975 acres of skiable terrain from tree runs to groomers, cat accessed backcountry. Almost 75% of the resort is dedicated to intermediates, though advanced skiers will love the 750 acre Monster Bowl filled with chutes, trees, roll overs and more. Did we mention the heli skiing base to take you to even more?
Add mountain peak fondue, mid mountain raclette and a village hot pools and, well, you won’t want to leave. There’s even the local Kicking Horse Coffee Roasters in downtown Invermere nearby.
