The Meadow Hut is nestled against the start of the Roaring Meg river and can sleep up to 20 people. This option is to book the Meadow Hut exclusively, so your group is able to come up for the night and have the hut all to yourselves.
Please note: This fee covers the hut overnight stay only. A trail pass (to access our trails) and rentals (skis, boots, poles) will be an additional charge -- please see Overnight Trail Pass & Rentals Package.
END OF 2019 WINTER BOOKINGS: Guests will not need a trail pass, but trails will be groomed if it snows if there isn't fresh snowfall before your booking guests should expect intermittent snow coverage. Rentals are able to be rented for skiing or snowshoeing to the hut and guest will only pay for one-day rental for the two days. Bag transfers will leave Snow Farm Lodge at 2:00 pm unless by other arrangement and be collected to be back at Snow Farm Lodge by 10:00 am.
3.5km from Snow Farm Lodge, the Meadow hut sleeps 20 people and is nestled beside the roaring Meg River. With good insulation and solar lighting, this hut is ideal for group trips.
Access the hut by cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in winter and hiking or mountain biking in summer. There is no motorised access without prior permission. During summer, there is no gear transport to and from the huts -- you must carry in and carry out everything you take with you, including rubbish.
The Meadow hut is equipped with cutlery, plates, pots, pans, mugs and full gas hobs to cook on. We also supply dish-washing detergent, tea towels and an on-site toilet. Solar lighting will keep the hut illuminated at night -- no candles are permitted at the huts due to the potential fire risk.
While there is no cell phone coverage at the Meadow Hut, a short walk up and out of the valley to the east should get you (Vodafone) mobile phone coverage.
Spring Season (22nd of September to 13th of October): Exclusive bookings only and no bag delivery available. Snow conditions could allow skis, snowshoes or walk-in only. There will be no refunds due to weather.
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. 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.
