Backcountry Huts Header


Snow Farm’s alpine huts are located a 1-2 hour ski or snowshoe from the main base area, and in the summer you can bike or walk in a similar timeframe.  We provide bag transfers to the Musterers and Meadow Huts when there is snow coverage in the winter season. 

Snow Farm NZ has four alpine hut options to choose from and each hut features a gas cooker, log burner, firewood, dishwashing up supplies, and a range of basic cooking and cutlery equipment. All you need to bring is food, drinks, a sleeping bag, and your overnight belongings, we ensure year round the huts have basic supplies. 

Although there is no running water at the huts, you do not need to bring water as we deliver containers of drinking water for you to use. For those who haven’t stayed at a Alpine Hut before, there is no mains electricity, and a long-drop toilet outside (toilet paper provided).

Musterers – 4.5km : New in 2022 but full of old-world charm, the Musterers hut can sleep up to 36 people in many configurations. It has three eight-bed bunkrooms on one side and three four-bed bunkrooms. Each side of the hut can be isolated by a partition wall in the middle, giving each side its own log burner, cooking, dining and entry. When booking, you can book the entire hut exclusively, the Westside of 12 beds or the Eastside of 24 beds, or book a bed or bunkroom. 

Meadow – 3.4km: A favourite of many, capable of sleeping 20 people in an open-plan setting, with a mezzanine that is excellent for the kids. 

Bob Lee – 5.4km: The original tunnel style hut that used to be situated high up on the Pisa Conservation area. Sleep’s 7 in an open plan.  

Daisy Lee- 5.4km: The most basic of our huts, but she’s basic but warm. Situated next to Bob Lee- great overflow for Bob. Sleeps 6
