Snowplay is ideal for families and those new to snow with less focus on walking and more emphasis on having fun in the white stuff. The trip begins with a short walk into a snowy gully on your Snowshoes. Once there, a range of fun activities based around play, shaping and using snow in all its forms, awaits. This requires a low level of fitness and is a shorter 4 hour return trip to Queenstown with a choice of morning or afternoon departures.
