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.

Meadow Hut

Great for families and large groups

By far the most popular hut on the Snow Farm, the Meadow hut is nestled against the start of the Roaring Meg Stream and can sleep up to 20 people. Not even a decade old, the hut has solar lighting, is well insulated and is ideal for large and small groups. It is also only a relatively short ski, snow shoe or walk (summer, spring or autumn) from the main base area – approximately 4.5 km.

We are currently redeveloping our online booking system. In the meantime, if you want to book Meadow Hut please use our contact form and let us know what dates you are interested in. Adults are $35/night, students $25/night and children $15/night. You can also book Meadow Hut for exclusive use at $500/night.

Meadow Hut is not available for booking from Mid October to early December, to give us some time to undertake essential maintenance and to ensure that travel on the trails when they are wet and muddy is reduced to the minimum practicable.

Bob Lee Hut

For the more adventurous

Set atop the northern end of the Snow Farm, the Bob Lee hut is a fantastic place to spend a night or more. Situated on top of a ridge with views down across the Pisa range and out to the Southern Alps, the view will literally take your breath away. The main hut is able to sleep seven people and the annex hut (separate hut with no heating or cooking facilities) is able to sleep an extra seven people. When you book by the bed make sure you check to see if you are booking in the Main Hut or the Annex Hut. The hut is about 6 km from the main base area.
