Skiing and Snowboarding information for Mt Hutt, New Zealand
Mt Hutt is usually the first of the New Zealand Ski Fields to open for the season and the last one to close. It is a bit over an hours drive from Christchurch and accommodation needs to be arranged in either Christchurch or Methven as there is no accommodation on the mountain itself. A ski bus runs daily services from both towns. The road to Mt hutt is not sealed and snow chains must always be carried. The ski resort itself has a reputation as one of the best and most consistent in New Zealand. There are plenty of lifts and all the facilities that a modern ski destination requires. Ski Hire is available on the mountain and there is a creche and restaurant.
