Snow Farm NZ is hosting a new ski event just for singles.
The cross-country ski area, which is set in the picturesque Pisa Range roughly opposite Cardrona Alpine Resort, has organised an event called Ski de l’Amour for single people in their 20s and 30s. Ski de l’Amour will run on September 8 from 12.30pm to 4pm.
Snow Farm NZ operations manager Sam Lee said, “Ski de l’Amour, that’s ‘ski of love’ in French, should be a great opportunity for locals and seasonal workers to get out on the snow and give Nordic skiing a go, while mixing and mingling with other like-minded ladies and gents of their age group.”
Together with Snow Farm NZ instructors, the plan is for the group to cross-country ski to and from a backcountry hut, and, once back at base, participants can head to the upstairs Snow Farm Lodge bar for beverages.
Lee said, “The instructors I’ve chosen to lead this singles' ski event have are set to prepare fun and engaging challenges along with a killer music playlist for the ski out.”
Tickets are $40 each, which is half of the price of a standard afternoon cross-country ski experience, and will include instruction, a trail pass and rentals -- skis, boots and poles.
In the future, Snow Farm NZ hopes to host more singles’ ski events and cater to a variety of different age groups.
