Getting to Snow Farm

Located in the heart of the South Island New Zealand, high on the Pisa Range, our facility is easily accessed from the Cardrona Valley Road which connects Wanaka and Queenstown.  Our unique location provides stunning views of the Southern Alps and particularly Tititea or Mount Aspiring.

The access road is unsealed and in winter time it is essential that chains are carried and ready to be used if needed.
