Come Join Us
Graduates Mountain Sports Club was established in 1966 and currently has around 400 members. The Club's membership includes skiers, snowboarders and mountaineers from a wide range of backgrounds and ages. The club has two lodges, Ohakune and Whakapapa (on mountain).
The lodges are very family friendly with private rooms that can accommodate 4-5 people so the lodges are a good match for mountain sports families.
The Club is run via an appointed committee and the Lodges are fully privately owned by the combined Membership.
WHY JOIN GRADS?
Grads has that extra wow that others do not. We encourage an environment where everyone can relax after a great day on the mountain. One way we achieve this is with good hearty food. How is that different from other clubs? The day starts with a full cooked breakfast (perfect for a big day on the slopes) when you come down the mountain, you have time to shower, time to relax then sit down for dinner made by our wonderful custodians.
After a great day on the mountain the last thing many of us want to do is cook dinner and for those with younger families this can also be a challenge. Our approach, pour yourself a wine or soda and relax by the fire. Read a book or simply play 'Go Fish' with the kids, you deserve it.

We have two Lodges one located on Whakapapa (on mountain) & the other in Ohakune servicing Turoa. These are the two main ski field's at Ruapehu, North Island, New Zealand.
Members book accommodation via an online system providing a simple process for Members to book quickly. When the conditions are right bookings are key.
