Mt Lyford

The access road turns off Highway 70 about 20km's after Waiau. It is a 10km long gravel road which passes through Beach Forest and into alpine terrain. It passes through the lower of the two areas at Mount Lyford, Lake Stella, where there is a car park, and finishes at Terako Basin, where there is another car park.


The sunny Terako field, an ideal family field, offers a great learners area as well as challenging runs for intermediate and advanced skiers. The Day Lodge
