North Island Winter Ski Holidays 2020
Whether you are touching snow for the first time, or you are an experienced user of Whakapapa and Turoa Ski Areas, be in the centre and choose the side of Mt Ruapehu that has the best weather and snow conditions on the day.
Staying at Parkview Apartments in National Park Village provides you with the benefit of being almost half way between two major North Island ski areas. And leave National Park Village knowing that when you get home, a warm comfortable apartment awaits you.
National Park Village is an up and coming ski destination with many activities to keep you busy, and contains many of the services and nightlife you would expect at an international winter holiday resort.
