Snow Farm is more than just a winter destination. Our trails are perfect for exploring the alpine environment of the Pisa Range by foot or mountain biking. Our backcountry huts are great for a family overnight tramping trip or as the base for a longer bike-packing or tramping trip further afield, or just to escape for the night.
Please park at the south end of the main lodge where you can easily access the trails. Day visitors are required to pay $20.00 per vehicle for the maintenance of the road. This fee is payable in the honesty box, please display your payment confirmation in the window of your car.
All Snow Farm NZ trails are open in summer for mountain biking and hiking. No motorcycles or 4WD’s are permitted except for 4WD’s when accessing the Meadow and Bob Lee Huts for overnight trips.
If you require access to the Pisa Conservation estate, you must have the express permission of DOC and in some instances, access can be granted through the Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds. Snow Farm does not accommodate any motorised access in the summer except when supporting overnight hut trips.
Can I book the hut exclusively or do I always have to share?
When you book, you have the choice to book the whole hut for your group’s exclusive use or to book individual bunks for your group.
