What's it like at Turoa resort?
Rising head and shoulders above the central North Island, Turoa boasts the largest vertical drop in Australasia; no wonder they call Turoa "The Giant". The south facing slope can get dry powder during the season, making Turoa a perfect alpine playground for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. After a day of challenging yourself on some of the runs, finding the secret powder stashes, and going big in the natural half pipe, Turoa's visitors and locals head down the mountain to Ohakune to dine, relax and re-live the day's adventures.

Visitor Reviews of Turoa
Brett from New Zealand writes:
I've skied Turoa all my life. But haven't for ten years. Recently I've seen things from a parent of toddlers prospective. Took the kids up there and I.think they need closer parking for parents with kids. Most other public businesses cater for this these days. They also sold me sled park tickets when, in fact, it was closed due to them being too lazy to run a groomer over it (only to open in the arvo when my toddlers have got very tired and need to go home). General appearance of the place is run down 'n dirty; toilets have no soap, paper towels or hand dryer not working .No policing of the self-entitled youths leaving skis 'n boards in the walk ways. Generally thought its being badly managed, like most NZ businesses these days
