Manganui. The only ski slope on Mt. Taranaki is owned by a small club and only operates for 10 to 30 days each winter (June–October), based on snow conditions. Non-members can buy tow passes for a day. Facilities are limited, it's a 20-minute walk from the parking lot to the ski area, and the terrain is for intermediate and advanced skiers.
