On sale now until Sunday 27 August, a four-day Adult Long Weekend Pass is NZD 349 (USD 208), or a three-day pass is NZD 299 (USD 178), a saving of up to 40%. Youth Long Weekend Passes are NZD 299 (USD 178) and three-day passes are reduced to NZD 189 (113). Best of all, these multi-day passes can be used any day of the week during the 2023 winter season and do not need to be used on consecutive days.


Ruapehu Alpine Lifts Chief Executive Officer, Jono Dean, says, “With our snow base already exceeding that of this stage in previous seasons; above 1m at Whakapapa Ski Area and 2m at Tūroa Ski Area, we’re keen to inspire even more people to plan their own long weekend on the slopes of Mt Ruapehu, with this great deal on three- and four-day lift passes. These Long Weekend Passes are the only multi-day lift passes on offer this season, and only for a limited time until 27 August.” 

Purchase Long Weekend Passes online at or on mountain at Guest Services.
