SUMMER AT the SNOW FARM

Snow Farm is the perfect summer destination around Wanaka for mountain biking, hiking, and staying overnight in our huts. Our cross-country skiing trails turn into mountain biking and walking tracks perfect for both newbies and the well-seasoned mountain biking enthusiast during the summer months.
Please park at the south end of the main lodge, where you can easily access the trails. Day visitors are required to pay $20.00 per vehicle for the maintenance of the road. This fee is payable in the honesty box; please display your payment confirmation in the window of your car.

Mountain Biking & Hiking

Our trails are perfect for exploring the alpine environment of the Pisa Range by foot or mountain biking. We convert our winter trails to a mountain biking and hiking metropolis, where you can find something for everyone in the family.


Stay at a Backcountry Hut

Snow Farm has three backcountry huts that are available to book all-year-round. Our backcountry huts are great for a family overnight tramping trips, a to escape for the night, or as the base for a longer bike-packing or tramping trip further afield.

These huts are the Meadow Hut, Bob Lee Hut & the Daisy Lee Hut. These all take similar times to reach hiking or biking.
Hut bookings cannot be made on the assumption that they can take a vehicle if access is denied due to weather. This does not allow bookings to be cancelled.


Summer Trail Map

All Snow Farm NZ tracks are open in summer for mountain biking and hiking. No motorcycles or 4WD’s are permitted except for 4WD’s when accessing the Meadow and Bob Lee Huts for overnight trips.
If you require access to the Pisa Conservation Estate, you must have the express permission of DOC and in some instances, access can be granted through the Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds. Snow Farm does not accommodate any motorised access in the summer except when supporting overnight hut trips.
