Tips on safe driving to Mount Ruapehu ski resort in NZ

Before driving to Mount Ruapehu ski resort in NZ, check local traffic laws to ensure you're carrying mandatory driving equipment (a set of requirements for driving in NZ) and "winter driving equipment" (a different set of requirements for driving in the snow or the New Zealand mountains in the winter) such as snow chains, hi-visibility vests, spare light bulbs and warning triangles. Each country has different laws - a big fine for being poorly equipped is an easy way to squander the saving you made on your superb value Sno holiday!

NB: Fitting snow chains for the first time can be tricky - learning to fit them at night, in a blizzard, on a busy and narrow Mount Ruapehu mountain road can be deadly. Learn how to fit snow chains to your car before you drive to Mount Ruapehu. If you are not confident driving on snow, don't risk it - book an airport transfer with one of the incredibly skilled and incredibly good value local drivers.
