    People flocked to Mt Ruapehu over the long weekend

    People flocked to Mt Ruapehu over the long weekend


    More than two thousand people headed up the mountain to enjoy the scenery and ride the Sky Waka.

    Ruapehu Alpine Lifts CEO Jon Dean says they're planning to open the ski areas every day this season if the weather permits, but not all lifts are able to operate due to COVID-19.

    He says the value of the new Sky Waka was reflected this weekend, compared with last year when only 898 people visited.
