Welcome to the Mountain!

Nau mai haere mai ki te Maunga!

Never Been to Manganui? We are Taranaki's Snowboard & Ski Area, with small beginner/intermediate, and larger off-piste adventure-type intermediate/advanced terrain; located on NZ's most accessible alpine area.

“Ka haere au ki te retireti hukapapa i te Maunga“ ...I am going to go Snowboarding on the Mountain!
