GETTING TO SNOW FARM
Located in the heart of the South Island New Zealand, high on the Pisa Range, our facility is easily accessed from the Cardrona Valley Road which connects Wanaka and Queenstown. Our unique location provides stunning views of the Southern Alps and particularly Tititea or Mount Aspiring. The road up to Snow Farm is not sealed but is suitable for most vehicles including 2WD cars.
All vehicles travelling to Snow Farm must carry chains in their car in the event it has or is snowing and the road conditions are such that chains must be fitted. Signage on the road will indicate where you should fit chains. These signs are there for your protection and must be obeyed. There are no staff at the chain bays, so its a good idea to practice putting chains on before you come up!
From Wanaka – 40minutes (33km): Head towards Queenstown and Cardrona township via the Cardrona Valley Road / Crown Range Road. The Snow Farm access road is located on the left side of the road about 200m from the turnoff to Cardrona Alpine Resort. The access road is unsealed and in winter time it is essential that chains are carried and ready to be used if needed.
From Queenstown – 60min (57km): Follow SH6 out of Queenstown and take the Crown Range Road towards Cardrona township. The Snow Farm access road is located on the right side of the road approximately 2km past Cardrona township. The access road is unsealed and in winter time it is essential that chains are carried and ready to be used if needed.
