Ohau Snow Fields

Nestled deep in the spectacular Mackenzie High Country,Ohau Snow Fields is a busy little ski area with a huge personality.

The mountain caters for all abilities. The double chair lift and the wide flat slopes at the top of the mountain enables most intermediates to cruise down the Boulevard very comfortably. There is some great hiking around the tops for the more adventurous accessing the best powder snow and the views from there are really magnificent and definitely worth the effort.

As well as lessons, rental gear and day lodge facilities on the mountain, Ohau Snow Fields is just 20 minutes’ drive from the warm, welcoming Lake Ohau Lodge: a great place to end your day on the snow.



Lake Ohau Lodge and Ohau Snow Fields is 320km, 4 hours, south of Christchurch and 275km, 3 hours, north of Dunedin.

Turn off the main highway 8 between Twizel and Omarama. The Lake Ohau Lodge, situated at the mountain base, is 42km, 30 minutes from Twizel and Omarama.

The Snow Field is only 9.6km, 15 minutes, from Lake Ohau Lodge, via a good metal access road.
