Tukino Mountain transport service

The Tukino Mountain Transport Service runs on demand from the 2WD Car Park (Base Camp) on the Tukino Access Rd up to the Tukino Alpine Village. 

Just call the Tukino Skifield from Waiouru or Turangi when you are traveling to the mountain and we will send our transport down to the 2WD Car Park to pick you up.

We recommend you dress warmly for the trip, in your ski gear, as alpine conditions can be cold. 

This season (2019) we will be operating a Complimentary Shuttle Service between the 2WD Car Park (Base Camp) and the Tukino Skifield. This service will be operated by our Volunteer Skifield Staff.


Call 06 387 6294 when you are at Turangi or Waiouru to arrange pickup.


8:30am - 5:30pm
7 days a week when the Tukino Skifield is OPEN.

Outside of those times by arrangement only.


It costs a lot to offer this service in this environment, so a suggested contribution against our costs of between $10.00- $20.00 per person would be appreciated to pay expenses to the Volunteers who drive the Shuttle.

Contributions towards our costs can be paid directly to the Driver (cash only) or paid at the Tukino Ticket Office (cash / card) when you purchase you Lift Passes.

Your generosity will be greatly appreciated by our volunteer drivers.
