It’s HUGE & it’s DIFFERENT – everyday
Fox Peak is the highest point of the Large Two Thumbs Range, North West from Timaru. The views reach to the Pacific Ocean, Timaru and Banks Peninsula. They are awesome!
More than 500ha of terrain is accessible from the tows. The wide-open faces are easily traversed by intermediates. They entice you to go faster, further and progress your riding. Over the back you find two huge (hidden) valleys offering superb trails for every level. The enticement to progress at Fox Peak is compelling. There are no crowds to intimidate and you can simply enjoy the space.
Fox Peak provides a great weekend accommodation with a cozy 40 bed lodge to relax after your day on the slopes. Here you partake in the classic ‘club field’ experience. You can also get a larger group together and book the lodge & ski area out for a week.
