Back country Huts

Back country Huts

Enjoy a truly unique overnight experience with your family in one of our two back country huts.  Both huts are trailside reachable within 2 hours easy to moderate skiing however you will feel like you have travelled to the middle of nowhere.  Both huts are kept nice and cozy with wood fires for heating (but there is no heating in the Bob Lee Hut annex).  They contain gas cookers, along with all the pots, pans and utensils you will need to create a delicious dinner. You will need to bring your own food! There is usually some water but you should bring some just in case. The sleeping arrangement is on bunks and you will need to provide your own sleeping bag.  We can even transport your overnight gear to the hut to save you having to carry it.  There are some solar lights at both huts but you should bring a torch (flashlight for our visitors from North America).

A truly awesome experience, and something which should be experienced by all.

Meadow Hut.

Meadow hut is our premier back country hut.  It contains 14 bunk beds with additional mattresses on a sleeping platform in the loft/mezzanine. Bunk allocation is on a ‘first come first served’ basis. The hut is located in the upper Meg valley next to the Meg river.  It is a 4km ski or snowshoe from the base facilities along the  River Run trail, easily achievable by beginners on their first day of skiing.    Popular with school groups and individuals alike this hut has helped many Snow Farm skiers return with smiles on their face.

Bob Lee Hut

Bob Lee Hut provides a true back country experience.  This rustic ‘Nissen’ hut is located on a ridge overlooking the historic Cardrona Valley and has spectacular views of Mt Aspiring and Southern Alps.  The hut is accessed via a 8km ski along the intermediate Loop trail.  The hut sleeps seven with room for an additional seven in an adjacent but unheated annex hut. If you stay in the annex hut in winter you will need a good winter sleeping bag! Watching the Sun set behind Mt Aspiring and the Southern Alps from the Bob Lee Hut deck while they wait for dinner to finish cooking is a popular activity for many local skiers in the know.
