The Whakapapa whānau are a small but ambitious team, running year-round operations on the northern slopes of Mt Ruapehu. In winter, from June until October, this includes a world-class ski area. In summer, from December until April, this includes our summer sightseeing operation, heroing our  iconic Sky Waka gondola. Each year we welcome hundreds of thousands of manuhiri (guests) to Whakapapa, many with life-long connections to the maunga (mountain) and surrounding rohe (region), some even third or fourth generation.

Our ski and ride instructors are able to teach all ages and lesson types whilst creating a fun, safe, and caring learning environment. As a member of the team at Whakapapa, you will create an empowering learning experience that keeps our manuhiri (guests) coming back and enjoying this winter playground year in and year out.
