Mt Ruapehu in your back yard? It will definitely feel like it at Sno Ruapehu!

A contemporary new build at the edge of Horopito and Tongariro National Park, Sno Ruapehu waits to welcome you. Spectacular views of the snow-capped Mt Ruapehu, surrounded by scenic reserve this holiday home will really feel like an escape.

Thoughtfully designed and furnished to create a modern and relaxing environment that will have you ready to unwind from the minute you put your bags down.

With only one room in the house (the bathroom) that doesn't have a view of the mountain, Sno Ruapehu boasts some of the best views in the region! Whether you're making dinner in the kitchen, sitting out on the sundeck enjoying a glass of wine or lying in bed you won't be short of stunning backdrops!

Thinking of somewhere to go for brunch? Ohakune is only 15-minutes by car. Get the heart rate up and explore the historic Old Coach Road cycle trail, the only mountain bike trail allowed in National Park. But one of the biggest highlights to this location is Turoa and Whakapapa ski fields are both just a 30-minute drive away - so for Skiiers and Snowboarders, this is the place to be!

For an unforgettable finish to the day, light a fire in the fireplace, snuggle up on the couch and gaze up at the snowy peak - Welcome to Sno Ruapehu!

Great stay, thanks

Stayed December 2021

The Bach is in a great location to access all the area has to offer, with easy drive to Ohakune, National Park and Whakapapa and Turoa. It is modern, well insulated and well equipped, especially the fantastic kitchen. There is a beautiful view from the front deck, a great place to watch Ruapehu. There is even a glimpse of Mt Taranaki out the back, and the surrounding landscaping is lovely. Such a beautiful, quiet and peaceful spot. In its current set up, it's better as a winter Bach than summer (once the fire is working, not currently). At the moment, it's very hot in warm weather with no cooling provided. Opening the windows helps but results in flying insects and mossies everywhere - bring insect repellent!

Our small family enjoyed staying at this beautiful property that had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, fireplace at night and stunning mountain views in the morning made for a memorable stay. Thanks for having us at your stylish and perfectly positioned property, we got to make the most of both sides of the mountain with ease.

Sno Ruapehu is a magical place. The coziness of the house, the wide open space outside for kids to run freely, the view of the mountain from just about everywhere on the property, all combined to make our stay a truly memorable one. It was our first visit to Mt Ruapehu, and Sno Ruapehu is one of the main reasons why this weekend will never be forgotten.

Absolutely stunning view and loved the quiet location. House had everything we needed. We will definitely stay again

The property was as described. A house in the middle of nowhere - the GPS took us to the train tracks - but we managed to find it. It was comfortable, cosy and warm. The kids really enjoyed the toys and just having so much space to run around. Beautiful views of the mountain. We couldn't ask for more! Thank you!

Great house, warm during the day and stayed warm overnight without the need of heaters in Summer. Also enjoyed the touch of kids toys!

Stayed September 2019

We had a pleasant stay, especially enjoying the beautiful view. However the property is very new and not quite fully functional. A little TLC and it could be a gem.

Yes, this property is brand new modern cottage and has all new appliances as advertised. We are sure the owner will add more 'personality' over time.

Great little house! Fire place kept us toasty warm, but the house was warm without it too. The view of the mountain was amazing (when the cloud cleared), and the kids loved watching the train go past too. It doesn't take long for the hum of the train to become unnoticeable. Beds are comfy. Little rotating lights at each bunk is innovative. Kitchen had everything we needed. Decor is lovely. Same distance to both Whakapapa and Turoa - perfect! New World 10 mins away in Ohakune or 4square at National Park in the other direction. No washing machine gave us a surprise (my oversight), and tv and WiFi yet to be set up as mentioned. Loved our stay!

Bachcare replied

Yes, this is a great modern take on a traditional ski hut. It was just built in 2019, so new features will be added over time.

Stayed July 2019

We had a wonderful time at Sno Ruapehu. The House is clean, stylish, warm and functional. It had everything we needed to be comfortable and happy during our stay. Karyn and Ken are great hosts and easy to communicate with. I will definitely be booking this place again!

Stayed April 2019

We had a great stay at this little slice of paradise. Amazing house, so well designed that its compact but doesn’t feel small. Really nice and clean, private and the manager was really helpful. Lots of activities around the area. Would definitely recommend!
