Night skiing new to Whakapapa for 2017

Winter just got way better, especially for those of us that don’t mind a wee sleep-in on the weekend! New for 2017, night skiing at Whakapapa Ski Area is set to launch from 7 July.

On Friday and Saturday nights and during School Holidays, Happy Valley and the Rangatira Express will stay open until 9pm – the perfect way to end the day!

Ski under lights, listen to live music, grab a pizza, try out the terrain park features and just generally soak up the great atmosphere!
