Bob lee hut overnight stay Absolutely fantastic time skiing into Bob Lee hut for our overnight adventure. Most of us hadn't cross country skied before and had a awesome time. Definitely recommend getting your overnight gear taken in by snow farm staff on the snow mobile. The hut itself has phenomenal views, well equipped and very warm and cosy for the 7 of us. Star gazing and sun sets are epic.
Dog sledding is here!! Oh Gosh what a fantastic place. Allow extra time for the 13km of winding dirt track to drive there after the highway turn off. Its the best place, still small and friendly. It offers all ski activities, but we went for the dog sledding. You get to drive the dogs and the basket with the instructors. SO wonderful. The lady in the bar makes the VERY best Mulled wine. Great experience! 🙂 Book online and check the weather before you go.
Great fun and a wonderful instructor We booked a day at the Snow Farm to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. This included a lesson before we were let loose on the wonderful tracks. Martina was a brilliant instructor, making sure she helped us all, whatever our ability and gave us enough confidence to spend a few hours on the tracks. I will not be challenging anyone in the New Zealand Cross Country team just yet but we had fun. We would recommend anyone to have a go and having a lesson first definitely helps.

Enjoy a night at the Bob Lee or Meadow Huts with your friends, its only a short 3.4 km or 5 km walk or bike to the huts or enjoy a day trip around any of the Snow Farm Cross Country Ski trails. It’s a great place to escape the heat and cycle in a car-free environment.
