Fox Peak is a non-profit club-run ski field on the Two Thumb Range, just 40km from Fairlie, South Canterbury. Renowned for its friendly and uncrowded atmosphere, Fox Peak offers huge runs catering for skiers and boarders of all abilities. The South Basin is described as a gem and is not visible form the main field. It offers untracked powder and runs for all abilities.

Four rope tows lift you 580 vertical metres up the mountain giving access to huge uncrowded slopes.

The rope tows are well maintained and there are always friendly, helpful people available to assist you in the art of using the nutcracker. Nutcrackers and overgloves are available from the canteen. Our canteen/ticket office offers drinks and snacks.

Fox lodge is situated beside the access road 3 kms below the ski field and is set in a pleasant tree sheltered location. It provides bunk accommodation for up to forty people, with family room options. Fox Lodge is well appointed with heating, drying room and hot showers ensuring a warm convivial atmosphere for après ski relaxation and other activities.
