Owner description: The Snow Farm is your ideal winter destination! Open from June 28th until September 23rd Cross country skiing and snow shoeing are great winter activities all-ages and abilities. It's an ideal way to experience the beauty of the NZ alpine environment and spectacular views of the Southern Alps. For the family we have our new Snow Fun zone. This is the perfect spot to build a snowman, go tubing, and have a great time in the snow, all while you relax over lunch, coffee, hot chocolate, or beverage from our on site bar and Cafe. Activities include: -Cross Country Skiing -Snow Shoeing -Lessons/Tours -Tubing/sledding -Snow Fun Zone -Back country huts

Snowfarm was a great day out! It is difficult to get to as a tourist and I had to hire a car with snowchains (ended up not needing them) to get there. The road was in very good condition and is comprable to the road trip to the Remarkables (prior to sealing). But...
Well worth it. Got a beginner pack which included gear(near new) pass and lesson (over 1 hour)
I was instructed by Thomas (top bloke) in a group of 2! It was structured, good fun and fairly easy to pick up. Staff and skiiers were friendly and there was no arrogance or aggro that can appear at some snowfields.
If you compare this pack 90 and car hire 80 the day cost came to 170 nzd. This is for a full (very energetic) day. That provides (I believe) the best value for money in the Area. Bargain

Getting up here is a bit slow due to the curves in the road but once you are , try to spend the whole day here as it is buzzing with activites.

You wil llove the minus 7 degrees and the view you get whilst here and the skiing and tubing is affordable and fun.

Whilst here , a must do is the dog sledding with Kurt and Fluer. Check out the reception counter for the brouchre.

Enjoyed the fact that the trendy crowd were elsewhere. Facilities were somewhat basic but had everything you need to have fun. Costs were very cheap compared to other snow fields.

My husband and I had never experienced anything like this before so we were blown away with the scale of the place. Just opposite the road leading up to the ski fields. Off piste skiing, cross country all laid out for you to try, and no crowds.

We took our 3 1/2 yr old tubing there and she had a ball! It's a 20 minute drive up the mountain from the main road, so be prepared for the drive.
