Swap the skis for a toboggan, a fat tyre bike or snow shoes for more fun on the snow
Internationally recognised as one of the best ski and snowboard regions in the world, Wanaka also offers a huge variety of snow-based activities and if you haven’t skied in Wanaka before, then hiring a guide to show you the mountains is a great way to get the best from your day.

Be sure to book and contact Snow Farm for a gear list and weather check before.
