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 road up to Snow Farm is not sealed but is suitable for most vehicles including 2WD cars.
All vehicles travelling to Snow Farm must carry chains in their car in the event it has or is snowing and the road conditions are such that chains must be fitted. Signage on the road will indicate where you should fit chains. These signs are there for your protection and must be obeyed.
