Snow Play, Snowshoe and Cross Country Skiing

Snow Farm is the place to go for snow experiences, unlike any other mountain. We have a dedicated snow play area, the Snow Fun Zone, filled with tubes and snow so you can slide down hills, build snowmen and settle a family dispute with a snowball fight!

We also have snowshoeing and cross country skiing for the more adventurous, but rest assured both of these activities are easy for first-time snow bunnies.

Please book online before you visit us to ensure you don’t miss out. All our activities have limited availability.


Snow Farm backcountry huts are between four and six kilometres from the base area, and take one to three hours to travel to by skis or snowshoes in winter. During the summer months, these huts can also be accessed by foot and mountain bikes, offering a unique high country experience.
