Did you know? I'm currently travelling through New Zealand for a year!
About 45 minutes from Wanaka, there is a facility called Snow Farm. It’s a large resort which has many kilometers of cross-country ski trails and is the only Nordic Skiing facility in New Zealand. I decided to head there one day with my mountain bike to explore some of these trails as it is open and free during the summer.
I had never been to Snow Farm before and I expected there to be a lot of other people up there hiking and biking, but I was surprisingly the only one. It was slightly eerie as there are a lot of buildings and infrastructure, but there was absolutely no one around which made it feel somewhat abandoned.
The challenge with Snow Farm, is that it is at the very top of the Pisa mountain range, which means that you have to drive up a very long, steep, and windy road to get there. I took this video on the way back down the mountain after my bike ride when I had to pull over to take in the awesome view.
