Turoa and Whakapapa from the air

On the southern side of Mt Ruapehu on the North Island, this is New Zealands highest lifted resort, and since it is on an active volcano the lava flows create some interesting terrain that makes the place like one big terrain park. Combined with Whakapapa on the north side of the mountain it is New Zealand?s biggest ski area.
