6km from Base, the Bob Lee hut sleeps seven people and takes in views of the Pisa Range and the Southern Alps. Access the hut by cross-country skiing or snowshoeing during winter.

Bob Lee hut features a gas cooker, log burner and firewood as well as a small range of cooking and cutlery equipment. All you need to bring is food, drinks, a sleeping bag and your overnight things. For those who haven’t been to a backcountry hut before, there will be no mains electricity, no running water and a long-drop toilet outside. Solar lighting will keep the hut illuminated at night -- no candles are permitted at the huts due to the potential fire risk.  

Here at Snow Farm NZ we believe everything is better at the top of a mountain, but that’s just our point of view. The view from Bob Lee hut looks straight over the southern alps at Mt Aspiring. Worth the visit just for the views.

There is (Vodafone) mobile phone reception at Bob Lee hut.

Summer: During summer, exclusive hut bookings may be able to take one support vehicle in with them if permission is granted by Snow Farm NZ management. Vehicles are only allowed to travel to the huts if the trails are dry. In the event of poor weather, management may revoke vehicle access. 

A padlock key code will be given a day before your arrival. Note: keycode changes regularly. However, if weather conditions are not favourable management reserves the right to decline vehicle access. All guests should be able to transport themselves to the hut if the conditions are not suitable for vehicle support, this is in order to preserve the trails and the environment at Snow Farm NZ.  Hut bookings aren't able to be made on the assumption that they can take a vehicle if access is denied due to weather, this does not allow bookings to be cancelled. 

The Snow Farm may allow a transfer of a booking to an alternative date in that season provided that we have capacity/availability. We will not transfer a booking for the following season and no refunds are given.
