Ohakune Chalet Accommodation
So that members could more easily access the Turoa ski field and the Ohakune region, the Pinnacle Ski Club invested in the alpine village and subsequently built another two storey chalet.
The Turoa Lodge provides an alternative form of ski accommodation for families who prefer a drive-to-the-door style winter holiday.
Pinnacle Club members can eat in the ski lodge or use the many restaurants and hotels to be found in Ohakune during the ski season.
Members with very young children or older teenagers often prefer the Turoa ski fields and so tend to frequent this Ohakune winter accommodation.
