Great family fun We had a wonderful couple of hours playing the snow here with our kids (5 & 6). And compared to other activities in the area, we felt it was really inexpensive. Snow fun was a great place for the kids to play in the snow, build a snowman, have a snowball fight and race in the tubes. Adults had equally as much fun!

Wnderful Experience the drive upto the Snow Farm alone is stunning, wide and an easy mountain road to drive with a few pull over spots on the way to take pictures from. We had never tried cross country skiing before. The instruction was brilliant with gear included was really good value for my kids and I. my body really felt like it had worked out every muscle afterwards.
Great facility in the Cardrona Valley for alternative snow activities We had really varied weather experiences & all our days were equally fun for all. We are older Australians looking for alternatives to downhill skiing (and its injuries?) and will definitely be back next year. A really great experience in South New Zealand!!
We are opening soon for Winter fun.
