Ruapehu ski fields open at Level 2 with health measures in place

The North Island ski fields will remain open under new level 2 measures, in spite of being off-limits to Aucklanders under lockdown.

QR codes and hand sanitiser dispensers have been put out for visitors on Mt Ruapehu.

Whakapapa and Turoa will be welcoming skiers from other areas of the country with distancing measures in place. The ski fields will be asking guests to maintain a two-metre distance from others on the mountain and encouraging visitors to book passes and parking in advance to help manage the numbers of visitors to the site.

The ski fields were delayed in opening this year. Opening on July 2, many of the planned public hygiene measures were able to be relaxed under level 1.
