Beginner Packages

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.

Backcountry Huts

Snow Farm NZ has two backcountry hut options, the Meadow and the Bob Lee hut. Both huts feature gas cookers, firewood and log burners, cutlery and everything you need to have a great night out on the Pisa Range. Just bring your food and drinks  and fun attitude and you will have a great time. See below for more specific details on each hut.

Weekly Programmes for Kids

Whether it is your child’s first time on the snow or they are a competitive cross-country racer, the Snow Farm kids programmes are the perfect way for your child to have a ton of fun, make friends, and develop new skills.

Weekly Programmes for Adults

Our adult programmes offer something for everyone. Cross-Country skiing is a lifelong sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Whether you have never skied before, are an experienced skier looking to improve, or are an endurance sports junkie athlete looking to stay fit and cross-train this winter, the Snow Farm has a programme for you.

Update - hard going with the new snow so there will be a bit of a delay in getting the Loop and River Run groomed. On schedule now to have them both groomed and open at 1pm. Apologies - please hang in there 🙂
