Spring is here and so is the fabulous spring snow! Both the lodges are open until Labour weekend at the end of October so there is still plenty of time to get some spring skiing!
Don't forget to book into the presidents weekend, being held Labour weekend (20-22nd October). This is your final chance to get some skiing in before the end of the season. This weekend is themed as Cowboys and there will be a party Saturday night. Everyone is welcome to attend this event and come along and have some good old Rangatira fun!!!

UPDATE FROM TAYLER & NEIL
Hello, Rangatira family we hope you've had a wonderful season up at Ruapehu this year! We wished we could have come back to visit but we have been very busy getting our new project underway. So without further ado, we are very excited to introduce you to our very own lodge in Myoko Japan, Moutain Hut Myoko!!! We are so stoked and still reeling from this new enterprise we are about to embark on.
Mountain Hut Myoko is our ski lodge at the base of Ikenotiara resort in Myoko-Kogen Japan situated only a few hours out of Tokyo and is world renowned for its epic powder. Our vision is to create a fun, relaxing and comfortable guesthouse that cater to everyone. We can't wait to get the keys next week so we can start making our little lodge feel like home and get ready for this upcoming winter season.
The lodge will be open for business from the 29th December just in time for NYE until the end of the season around mid-March!!! We are in the process of designing our logo and website but in the meantime please follow us on our Facebook and Instagram pages Mountain Hut Myoko. We will be posting updates as things progress including photos, prices, and extra info until we have our website fully operational. If you can give our social pages a like and a share to help us get our name out there it would be very much appreciated.
If you are keen to get in early and want to pre-book your accommodation with us for this coming season or have any questions then please email us at email@example.com or message us via our FB page.
We would also like to offer Rangatira members an exclusive discount of 20% on your accommodation if you do decide to come and stay with us. Well really hope you have the opportunity to come over for a visit and be a part of this exciting adventure.
