I think Tongariro Expeditions http://www.thetongarirocrossing.co.nz/ operate all year round - weather permitting and there may well be other companies too. You can pick up the bus in Taupo, Turangi or National Park Village.

Check the weather here: http://www.weathercity.com/nz/turangi/

Late April is starting to get a bit marginal for alpine areas. Make sure you have plenty of warm gear. Ask the guiding company for advice when you book.

Best site for weather which is uncannily accurate www.metvuw.com go to 3 or 5 day forecasts.

Weather has been great but this weekend might be the end of a very settled period. Today for example very still, clear skies and in town a good 20'. As mentioned in earlier posts can be variable at this time oof the year. Numerous operators in town running at present. Check with isite.
