And Sunday 15 July 2018
Come along and enjoy a fun weekend of ski orienteering and racing.
Suitable for all ages and abilities, we will have a range of courses to cater for both novices and experts, so don't worry if you have never been on XC skis before. This will be a perfect opportunity for families to come along, being the middle weekend of the school holidays. Also acts as the (unofficial) New Zealand Ski Orienteering Champs, so an opportunity for some glory for those that are keen :)
Also a great opportunity to get in some practice for the Highland Events snow rogaine the following weekend.
Directions: Snow Farm NZ
Located high on the Pisa Range, the Snow Farm is accessed from the Cardrona Valley Road which connects Wanaka and Queenstown. The road up to Snow Farm is not sealed but is suitable for most vehicles including 2WD cars.
All vehicles travelling to Snow Farm must carry chains in their car in the event it has or is snowing and the road conditions are such that chains must be fitted. Signage on the road will indicate where you should fit chains. These signs are there for your protection and must be obeyed.
