Swap the skis for a toboggan or snow shoes for more fun on the snow
Internationally recognised as one of the best ski and snowboard regions in the world, Wānaka also offers a huge variety of other snow-based activities.
Dog sledding operates at Snow Farm in the Cardrona Valley through the winter months and is a truly exhilarating experience. Here you can also try tobogganing and snow shoeing - fun options suitable for the whole family. Make a night of it and ski or snow shoe to a backcountry hut, there are a handful of cosy, well maintained huts in the Pisa Ranges. Be sure to book and contact Snow Farm for a gear list and weather check before.
With endless vistas of snow-capped peaks and terrain for the experienced, backcountry ski touring is a great way to explore the winter wilderness of Wānaka.
Ice Driving at the Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds is a high octane, high performance, and high-end luxury experience. Drive a brand-new Audi on ice and snow, enjoy gourmet cuisine and luxury accommodation all in the stunning mountains of the Cardrona Valley.
Tubing is great fun option for the whole family and the best thing is that you don’t have to be a skier or snowboarder to give it a go. Cardrona offers tubing runs on the hour, for hour-long sessions.
