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.
snow farm first time visit Friendly and helpful staff, good quality gear. Excellent lesson and loved the trails we tried out in a very peaceful and beautiful environment.
Exhausting, Fun, Stunning - would do it again! Our last day in Wanaka and decided to try cross-country skiing. We had a brilliant teacher who got us both to master the basics in the allotted hour. After that we felt so confident we set off on a long green trail, but it was a bit to steep at the start and so we tackled the shorter 'Highlander' trail, twice. The second time was easier than the first and if our slightly ageing bodies had allowed we'd have had another go!We'll definitely be back if we can. The only thing we got wrong was only wearing Reactolite glasses for eyeshade. Although they darkened very well both our eyes were tired from the bright sunshine so we should have worn goggles.A great venue with great staff. Many thanks.

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 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.
