The Awakino ski field is located in St. Marys Range, North Otago, New Zealand near Kurow. It is run by the Waitaki Ski Club and is virtually unknown outside of Otago.
Among the New Zealand club fields, Awakino best represents club skiing as it first began. It is the least changed and least developed of the fields. This - and the low cost of skiing - is part of the field's charm. A weekend at Awakino with good snow and a good group of committed people is something that one will remember for a long time.
