Company Description:At The Powderhorn we recognise the importance of our environment and our community. We understand that the well being of our natural surroundings affects the well-being of our business, our staff, our community and our guests. We are aware of the impact our actions and activities potentially have and therefore will continue to engage with, encourage and research new initiatives to assist in the operation of an environmentally and ethically responsible business. We intend these actions to aid the long-term preservation of our environment and consequently tourism and prosperity in the Ruapehu region.
The Powderkeg Restaurant and the Powderhorn Ski Bahn. Shortly after completion of the hotel, the Matterhorn Restaurant and Bar had its grand opening.
Timber has been used extensively throughout the complex, the majority of the materials sourced locally. Douglas Fir beams, Macrocarpa, Redwood and Douglas Fir linings, Rimu tables, bar-tops and benches are all major features exhibited throughout the building.
The Powderhorn Chateau is the first building to be constructed to a new earthquake proof code and incorporates radically new concepts in design and engineering. As it is a purely wooden structure, the building will shift with earth movement without risk of collapse.
