The Merino Muster - A WORLDLoppet ski race
The Merino Muster is a cross-country ski race at the marathon distance of 42km. The race is New Zealand's leg of the WorldLoppet tour, an annual series of international ski marathons taking place in 20 countries.

We at Wanaka XC cater for both novice skiers and experienced skiers, everyone has the chance to challenge themselves no matter how fit or experienced you may be. All you need to do is bring your enthusiasm to ski in the gorgeous surrounds of Wanaka and Snow Farm.
