During summer, Snow Farm’s cross-country skiing trails turn into mountain biking and walking tracks perfect for both newbies and the well-seasoned mountain biking enthusiasts.

Please park at the south end of the main lodge, where you can easily access the trails. 

Summer visitors are required to pay $20.00 per vehicle for the maintenance of the road. This fee is payable in the honesty box at the base of the access road next to the gate; please display your payment confirmation in the window of your car.

Mountain Biking and 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. Donations for trail usage are greatly appreciated.

Stay at a backcountry Hut

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

These huts are the Musterers Hut, Meadow Hut, Bob Lee Hut & Daisy Lee Hut. All 3-6km from our base.

Vehicle access is only permitted in good weather (at our discretion). Refunds will not be given if you cancel due to denied vehicle access.

Summer 4wd Access

We allow 4WD access to huts from December to the end of April (subject to trail conditions). This is for exclusive hut bookings (not by the bed) only or by prior arrangement.

This is designed to support large groups where it is not physically possible to move all required equipment or if one or more attendees are physically unable to make the trek. 


No booking should be made with the expectation of vehicle access.

In the event of bad weather or wet trail conditions (e.g. freeze-thaw) and vehicle access being revoked, this does not qualify you for a refund.

All Snow Farm tracks are open in summer for mountain biking and hiking. No motorcycles are permitted. 4WDs are only allowed at our discretion, to access 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.
