Whakapapa on the northern side of Mount Ruapehu in New Zealand's Tongariro National Park is one of the mountain's two commercial ski fields. The season is generally from July to October, but depends on snow and weather conditions. It is accessible by car and chairlifts, with beginners to advanced skiing slopes. Limited accommodation and refreshments are available at Top O'the Bruce, at the entry to the ski field, as well as elsewhere on the mountain. Alpine huts are also provided for trampers and climbers.
