The trails will be suitable for mountain biking and walking/tramping in late November/early December once everything has dried out and the last snow has melted. The backcountry huts are open from the 9th December 2017.
Road users need to pay $20/car contribution to maintaining the road. This should be paid into the honesty box located at the main access point to the trails.

We are closed for cross coutry skiing until the winter 2018. Have a great summer!
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.
