About Us

We are UASC

The largest sports club on campus

Founded in

1966

Back in 1966 a few of our founding members built the club lodge on Mt. Ruapehu. The lodge is geared up to sleep 32 and host raging parties all winter, and even with all the student antics we’ve been able to keep the place in good knick.

Our Purpose

Skiing and Snowboarding

The UASC lodge is a 32-bed haven for students and alike to gather up on the mountain throughout the winter season. It’s ridiculously close to the main chairlift at the base of Whakapapa, just a few minutes walk and you’re in line to get up the mountain. We hold events with organised transport every few weekends to make sure there’s an opportunity for everyone to get down there at some point.

Every Morning

Annual working bees at the lodge means the lodge is nice and warm, ready for another year of good times. With two large bunk rooms upstairs, a kitchen, ski tuning room, drinking pit, and massive open floor living and dining area, the lodge is the place to be this winter.
