Ohau Snow Fields is a small family run ski field located on New Zealand’s South Island. Tucked away in the Mackenzie High Country, Ohau Snow Fields offers visitors spectacular views of Lake Ohau from the Ohau Range on the Main Divide.

The Ohau Snow field has great terrain for all skill levels from beginners to intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Beginners will find wide open runs while the more advanced rider can hike to more challenging terrain for un-touched powder runs and amazing views.

A 20 minute drive from Lake Ohau Lodge to the snowfields. Most visitors drive their own vehicles but occasionally chains might be needed. There is also a bus that leaves the lodge in the morning and returns in the evening.
