  • I'm looking at the chalet for me and my 2 children, my son wants to sleep on Mt Ruapehu does your accommodation have a view from the bedrooms

    Hi there, Thank you for your questions. Our hotel suites have views of the junction or the Mangawhero River, unfortunately there are none directly facing the mountain. Kind Regards, The Powderhorn Team
