About Snow Farm

Snow Farm Ski Resort is situated 35km from Wanaka and 55km from Queenstown and somewhat unique in that it is not designed for the kind of skiing you’re likely here to read about, that being conventional downhill skiing. Instead, Snow Farm is New Zealand’s only Nordic Ski area. In Winter Snow Farm Ski Resort offers over 55 km worth of classic cross-country skiing and ski skating tracks. Not to mention snowshoeing, fat biking, tobogganing, dog sledding and conventional ski touring options.

Lovely place for ski enthusiast; beginners and professionals alike. Budget & family friendly. Ski instructors are very friendly & gives helpful advices. Ms.Sofie is so pretty 🥰 very professional, and with obvious wide experience on the ski field, she made our 1st time ski experience fun & memorable. Cheers to the lovely farm 👍💯👍
Primarily intended for vehicle testing, this is a magical place.
Best snow quality around and boy it really shows there!
The drive up is also very impressive.
Full snow clothing including googles highly recommended
Due to sub-par conditions at Cardrona I decided to head over to the Snow Farm to try out classic x-country skiing for the day. I went for a 1 hr lesson + equipment hire. The group size of the lesson was great, with a ratio of 1 instructor to 4 learners and our instructor, Sophia, was exceptionally knowledgeable, patient and a load of fun! I look forward to my next opportunity to get out there to further improve my skills! Thank you!
