Bob Lee Hut Kahu Youth did an overnight in the Bob Lee hut and it was amazing. The hut is very warm, comfy and has all the cooking facilities you need. The walk to the hut was very enjoyable and the stars at night were awesome.
Our stay at Bob Lee hut! Incredible experience It was totally amazing! We booked it 3 weeks in advance and then we were super lucky with the weather. The gamble paid off. Our first time on skis, beautiful hut, cold, crispy night with heaps of stars! We kept the fire going all night and they had candles and playing cards there for our lighting and entertainment. And nobody else turned up, so we had the Bob Lee hut all to ourselves!
Incredible experience! We have been there with our 5 year old. She absolutely loved playing in fun zone. Building a snow man, tobogganing, snow ball fights... We took a ski lessons as well : very organised n quick gear sorting. Really helpful staffs.All the facilities available.and yes we enjoyed the drive too. Snow capped mountains and lookout from road is amazing.

Snow Farm is the place to come for a great selection of winter activities.

For the more adventurous you can try Cross-country Skiing, our beginner’s packages are ideally suited to enable anyone of any age to have fun on cross-country skis. The backcountry huts book out well in advance so make sure if you are thinking of spending one or two nights at the Meadow or Bob Lee hut, book early, so you don’t miss out!
Snow Fun Zone
A hit with families and tourists looking to spend time in the snow and try some classic winter activities. Slide down the hill on one of our tubes or toboggans, throw snowballs, build snowmen and have a great time. The emphasis is on fun, and being in the snow with family and friends. The Snow Fun Zone is limited to 30 people at a time and has three sessions you can book, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Snow Shoeing Experience
Looking for something different to do in the mountains? Snow Shoeing is a great experience for any family or group. If you can walk, yes you can snowshoe! Using the latest snowshoes from our rental fleet you can float across the snow and adventure as far as your heart pleases onto the Pisa range. With both on piste and off-piste trails, we really have you covered for that “something different” experience. Allow 1-2 hours.
Our beginners’ package is ideal for your first time on cross country skis. Not only do you get a trail pass and skis/boots/poles for the day, but also a one-hour introductory group classic lesson.
Beginner lessons start with putting your gear on and falling over and getting up safely. The instructor will then move into techniques for moving on flat terrain, as well as uphill and downhill techniques.
This lesson will leave you feeling confident and ready to master beginner terrain on our trail system.
We open on June 28th for the 2018 winter season.
