The South Face Road was built as a major logging road. It is wide, with steep grades, loose gravel and sometimes mud, snow and fallen trees in winter. Our 4WD vehicles are equipped to handle these conditions safely. If using alpine bus from Moe, in extreme conditions we may require up to 30 min extra travel time for 4WD transfers from resort entry gate to village.
