Car testing firm snaps up Snow Park


Wanaka terrain park Snow Park NZ has been sold to the neighbouring vehicle and car testing facility. 

Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground bought it from the Lee family, who opened it in 2002. 

Snow Park boss Sam Lee has said the facility wouldn’t open this winter. It’s expected to be closed while SHPG assesses options. 

“We’re going to start assessing what opportunities exist within existing facilities and how we can expand them,” SHPG’s Tom Elworthy says.
