WELCOME TO SNOW FARM

New Zealand's home of cross country skiing

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

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

Located 45 minutes from Wānaka and 1hr 10 minutes from Queenstown airport, your adventure is just around the corner.

Please book online before you visit us to ensure you don’t miss out.
