Ski the South Island!

Fly into Christchurch for access to some of the best snow in the South Island of New Zealand

Mt Hutt isn’t just Canterbury’s own “big mountain” – it’s also one of New Zealand’s largest ski areas with some of the best natural snow around. With an altitude of 2086m and a skiable area of 365 hectares, Mt Hutt has one of the longest vertical drops in the South Island and a great variety of terrain. It also comes with spectacular views – on a clear day from the summit you can see the Pacific Ocean in one direction and into the heart of the Southern Alps in the other.

Featuring modern chair lifts and world-class facilities, the area is perfect for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. Beginners feel just as comfortable on wide, groomed runs as the freestyle enthusiasts are on terrain parks, or the world-class athletes who train at the international race arena.

Voted NZ's Best Ski Resort Mt Hutt boasts wide open terrain for all ski and snowboard ability levels plus kids 10 years and under ski for free at Mt Hutt. Superb conditions, spectacular terrain and laid back kiwi hospitality will leave you dreaming for more. Just 90 minutes’ drive from Christchurch Airport, Mt Hutt is easily accessible and with the small town of Methven located near the base of the mountain there’s plenty of accommodation options right on the doorstep.

For transport you can drive yourself up to the skifield or there is a regular Mt Hutt ski bus from downtown Methven.

Kids 4 Free this winter

Mt Hutt and the town of Methven continue to offer Kids 4 Free this winter, whereby children under the age of 10 can ski at Mt Hutt, stay, eat, and travel for free round Methven with participating operators, making a family ski holiday that much more accessible.
