Getting to SnowSports Lodge, Mt Ruapehu

Follow Bruce Road up from Whakapapa Village to the Top o' the Bruce at Iwikau Village.

Access to SnowSports Lodge is located on your right adjacent to Tokoroa Alpine Club Lodge (the first lodge you encounter).

Plan to arrive during daylight hours, if possible, as the track can sometimes be difficult to find at night (have torches ready).
