The Snow Farm is New Zealand's home of cross country skiing. Based 1500m above the Cardrona Valley. Snow Farm’s tracks and accommodation have attracted foreign cross country and biathlon ski teams for many years.
The cross country ski trails roam across the lower part of the Pisa range. Many follow old farm and mustering trails while others were formed to exploit the topography and shaped for snow retention.
