Are you skiing

the 2021 KANGAROO Hoppet?

Why not join Wanaka-XC the week after for....

THE 2021 Merino Muster

New Zealand's WorldLoppet Ski Marathon
4 September 2021


The Merino Muster is New Zealand's XC ski marathon.  It’s a 42km race across the stunning Pisa Range ski area at Snow Farm XC resort between Queenstown and Wanaka. 

The Muster is the third stop on the 2021/22 WorldLoppet tour and follows hot on the heels of the Kangaroo Hoppet.  It’s a race that should be on every cross-country skiers bucket list and the next step for those chasing the goal of the WorldLoppet passport.


In 2016, Wanaka XC first held a luxury stay based around the Merino Muster event.  We hosted a small group of international skiers with a wide range of abilities and gave them the best possible experience.

We're offering you the chance for the same experience in 2021.  We have once again organised fantastic accommodation in an immaculate and comfortable house right in the centre of Wanaka allowing you to experience life in one of the most beautiful mountain towns in the world.  We'll provide all your meals, transport, ski expertise and race preparation.  

We also provide something else and that’s a chance to stay with a small group of like-minded cross country ski enthusiasts of all abilities, sharing in your passion and making your event so much more memorable!

Come to NZ and race with us

Wanaka XC have an exclusive package for the Merino Muster that includes all accommodation, food, transport ski and event support.  
Our stay starts the Monday following the Hoppet.  
All you have to do is get to Queenstown that Monday, we will take care of the rest.
