“Snow farm”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Apart from a few cross country skiers the place was deserted. There was no body around to ask about sledging or tubing which is what we wanted to do. Only positive was the views

“Great afternoon with family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This was a spur of the moment decision and had an absolute ball! The staff very helpful and friendly, the kids had fun out on the hill but we didnt go skiing here.

Massive snow fight, went upstairs and had the BEST hot chips and laughed all the way back down the mountain! Worth the drive up although a long drive!

We did have some difficulty finding details about the difference with the Snow Park and Snow Farm but finally sorted this out and went to the Farm which tended to our family wants and needs!

“Need to go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is one of those places I need to go back to. Different to simple downhill snow, this place offers an enjoyable experience in the snow.

“Local's Day is a great deal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Once a month, locals get a rental, lesson, and entrance to Snow Farm for $25. What a deal! Our instructor, Luka (sp?), was totally entertaining and had us xc skiing in no time. Wishing there was a little more to look at, but we are just beginners so we skied in circles a lot.
