Winter In Taranaki

Be on the ski slopes half an hour after you arrive for your winter getaway.

Yes, winter is coming and that means winter activities. The word “snow” brings up images of skiing and Stratford is a convenient base for skiers. Within half an hour’s drive is the Stratford Mountain Club, Taranaki’s winter wonderland.

The Stratford Mountain Club offers 59 ha of glorious snow-covered terrain with lovely beginner’s area and lesson packages. Kilometer-long runs and two natural half-pipes make this the perfect no-frills ski area.

Stratford Mountain Club’s ski season typically begins in early June and runs through to mid-October. Webcams are placed all over the mountain so you can check the conditions before you head out for the day.

Relax in a spa bath after a challenging day on the slopes, and wake up to a beautiful cooked breakfast before you return to the ski field or spend a day exploring Taranaki’s other fantastic attractions.

Exhibitors of cattle (dairy and beef), horses and pigs are invited to compete against some of the country’s top-bred animals for great prize money and recognition. For children, there is a calf club section as well as a class for pet lambs.
