Pipers Ski Lodge


Hi team ! Wish I was coming to see you this year but it's my son's turn ! Looks like the weekend will be a good one too hopefully. The lodge looks so good, you have been busy.
Hi Dianne and Bruce
How for Xmas day in taupo on 25th Dec from Alan thomasen rotorua ok
Thank you Bruce and Di for your wonderful hospitality and looking after Brent and the 3 boys . They had a wonderful time . Pipers lodge is absolutely perfect for a family holiday . Comfortable accomodation, nice food , friendly atmosphere. Lovely comfy beds according to the boys plenty of activities for everyone to do . Not only have Bruce and Diane continued the family tradition of Pipers Ski Lodge they have made it even better . Cheers Brent and Lesley Piper
Last month Horahora School had their triennial Ski Camp. We stayed and Pipers Lodge in National Park and just want to let everyone know what amazing hosts Bruce and Dianne were. Bruce was so accommodating and helpful right through my planning process, nothing was too much trouble and that made it the easiest camp I have ever organised. Not only that but our meals were catered, including a full cooked breakfast each skiing morning and no-one went hungry...the meals were substantial. Bruce organised bus transport to the skifield one day at a very competitive price pp when we couldn't take our cars up due to icy conditions and we were able to hire gear on the spot. I would highly recommend this accommodation for any group or family - the rooms were clean and warm and the lounge area cosy with a large fire. We all enjoyed our stay, thanks to our wonderful hosts.
Thanks to the team at Pipers lodge, especially Bruce and Diane.
Much loved and with so much humour to share, they show kindness in these uncertain times.
Happy Birthday Bruce! 🎂🍧🍨🍩

Hi, on march 8/10th 2019 we'll be at your place, I'd like to know the possibilities for the Tongariro Crossing shuttle?
Do they leave at your place to the starting point and is there a shuttle to pick us up at the end of this hike ?
Thanks, kind greetings.

Whoop 🙌🏻

Great news from Travis and the RAL team.
They are going to have more lifts open more often and season passes set to go on sale from the 3rd of July.
Check out the update below!

Winter 2023 season update from Travis Donoghue - Chief Operating Officer

Kia ora,

Thank you for sticking with us. But an even bigger thanks needs to go to the team at RAL, for whom this summer has been a bit of a mystery and misery at times. While it looks like part of that is set to carry on a bit longer yet, we’ll now be able to focus on what is right in front of us, hosting you for a great winter 2023. This is good news and should allow us all to remember why we are here- the love of this maunga.

My favourite statistic of this summer came in learning that our permanent team members at RAL add up to a total tenure of around 500 years, with just over 10 years each on average- that we have managed to hold on to this team through summer is amazing and it is testament to their tenacity and passion for Mt Ruapehu. On September 1st we also tick up 70 years of RAL.

We are set to open both Tūroa and Whakapapa from July 1st as conditions and weather allows. We’ve not had that much snow yet but it’s looking like we will get some falling into and over opening weekend. Enough to kickstart that winter feeling at the very least.

It is normal for us to be gradually phasing lifts and terrain into opening across July and even into August. With this earlier opening, we are also planning to operate more lifts at Tūroa when compared against our initial plan at the start of summer, in other words, we are now working to a plan of more lifts, more of the time. The only lift that will stay out of plan is the Nga Wai Heke- it has some maintenance work outstanding but there is a small chance it becomes an option later in the season. All other lifts on both sides are on track to open as soon as they are able.

At this stage, our team sizes are smaller than in some previous years, they are great in some areas and light in others, but we intend to continue to recruit and to ramp up to meet our new plan and demand.

We are aiming to have day passes available for purchase online from Thursday 29th June, and all going well, on Friday, we will be able to update you on a season pass offer which would be planned to go on sale on Monday 3rd July!

Lastly, one small matter…while RAL operates the season, Life Passes will remain active and useable.

Thanks once more, we can’t wait to see you, and we will keep the information coming.

Nga manaakitanga,

Travis Donoghue
