The Tukino Alpine Sports Club is one of three lodges at Tukino Ski Field, at 1700m on the eastern slopes of Mt Ruapehu. Being on the eastern side of Mt Ruapehu, Tukino enjoys relatively calm conditions, sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds, and warm sunshine right from the early part of the day.
We provide affordable and comfortable accommodation on the mountain for our members and guests.
Casual visitors and non-members are welcome. Groups enjoy TASC for the outdoor activities and training exercises.
We think the Tukino area is truly magic. From its position on a ridge, our lodge offers stunning views of Mt Ruapehu to the west and the Kaimanawa Ranges and Lake Taupo to the east and north.
TASC is being constantly upgraded, we prioritise being environmentally friendly and ecologically minded.
SEE YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN!
