The Snow Farm is far more than a winter destination. During the summer Snow Farm allows users to access its fantastic network of trails and huts for walking, mountain biking or simply exploring the unique flora and fauna of the high alpine Pisa Range. Snow Farm makes an ideal destination for a first tramp, a family bike outing or a break from the often hectic life down in Wanaka or Queenstown.

Summer use of Snow Farm’s trails is encouraged and free. Please note there is a $20 toll to help maintain the access road throughout the year. Please pay this toll into the SHPG honesty box at the top of the road.
