Glacier Hut, Whakapapa

Glacier Hut, Whakapapa

Glacier Hut, at an altitude of 1,740 metres on the Whakapapa skifield, was the first purpose-built ski club hut. It was built by members of the Ruapehu Ski Club in 1923, and like many early huts, was very basic. Clad with corrugated iron, it had six bunks and a stove. In 1989 the club restored the hut as a skiing museum.
