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.
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 river 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 short ski or walk from the main base area.
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 7 people and the annex hut (seperate hut with no heating) is able to sleep an extra 8 people. When you book by the bed make sure you check to see if you re booking in the Main Hut or the Annex Hut.
